The toughest defense Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill faced Sunday was when he tried to jump into the Dawg Pound in Cleveland.

After scoring his second touchdown in the first half, Hill celebrated by trying to leap into the stands. A Browns fan responded by promptly returning him to the field.

Hill rushed for 148 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries in the Bengals’ 30-0 win.

When the two teams played on Nov. 6 in Cincinnati, Hill said afterward that “they’re probably worse than I thought” despite Cleveland’s 24-3 win.

His disdain for the Browns must make Sam Wyche proud.
