Cincinnati Bengals rookie Joe Mixon, offensive line show they can work well together
CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon has a promise of dinner for his offensive linemen on the table, and after his big game on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, he’s not backing down from it.
“They can get whatever they want,” Mixon said happily after the Bengals beat the Browns 30-16. A large part of that win was due to Mixon, who rushed for 114 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 51 yards.
“I’ll buy them dinner for sure, why not. They deserve it,” Mixon said. “They deserve it. We’re going to keep on working.”
Buying dinner for that many people won’t come cheap, but Mixon promised the meal would be at someplace nice. The rookie gave credit to the offensive line several times and told reporters he and several members of the line had talked on Friday.
