The Cincinnati Bengals got their diamond in the ruff over the offseason. The team attained fifth-year running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis out of the free agency, after he spent his first four years in the league with the New England Patriots.
BJGE came from a pass first, run only when you need to philosophy in Foxboro to a ground-pounding division in the AFC North. After struggling early on to get a feel for his new every down role, The Law Firm has turned it on in the last five games. Since November 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs, Green-Ellis has averaged 108.6 yards in each of his games with the Bengals.
For the first time in his career, he has rushed for 100+ yards in multiple games. Last night, he also eclipsed 1000 yards rushing on the season for only the second time in his career. His 1,080 yards this season, are the most the running back has ever ran for since his NFL debut.
He has turned up the intensity at the right time in the season, giving the Bengals offense something to lean on in games. BJGE keeps getting better every week and he doesn’t look to be slowing down. With three games left, the sky is the limit for the workhorse back.
