5 stars in the Cincinnati Bengals vs Miami Dolphins game

Several players stood out among the pack when it came to the top performers of this week 5 matchup.


Joe Mixon - Bengals

Joe MIxon had missed the last few Bengals games with an injury. He celebrated his return by rushing for 93 yards on 22 carries. He also caught three passes for 22 yards and one very good TD catch.


Kenyan Drake - Dolphins

Drake was certainly a dual threat for the Fins. He carried six times for 46 yards (7.7 YPR) He also lead the team in catches with 7 for 69 yards and a touchdown. He also did the little things, like the pancake block of his man on the play below. After the big block, he caught the screen and took it for a first down.


Michael Johnson - Bengals

Two defensive touchdowns by Cincinnati were the difference on Sunday. One of those was by Michael Johnson who took an interception 22 yards for the score. He added three tackles and a pass breakup.


Jerome Baker - Dolphins

The Dolphins may have lost, but that wasn't because of defender Jerome Baker. Baker had seven tackles (two for loss), two sacks, and two quarterback hits. He just couldn't do it all.


AJ Green - Bengals

AJ Green has had a relatively quiet season, outside of a three touchdown game against Baltimore. On Sunday, he had six catches for 112 yards. That made him the Bengals receiver with the most 100 yard games in team history.
