Mixon rushed 14 times for 33 yards and a touchdown while catching four of five targets for 58 yards and another touchdown in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Jets.
Mixon couldn't find much running room but was effective as a pass-catcher and salvaged his day on the ground with a one-yard rushing score early in the second quarter. His fifth rushing touchdown of the season was a long time coming, as it came on Mixon's fourth touch from inside New York's two-yard line. He added his second receiving score of the year from eight yards out in the third quarter, but the Jets took over late to pull off a Halloween treat for the fans at MetLife Stadium. After out-touching Samaje Perine 18-2, Mixon should work as the Bengals' feature back against the Browns in Week 9.
