The Bengals are 1-3, and one reason why is the team’s inability to cross the goal line on the ground.

Cincinnati is one of two teams without a rushing touchdown. That’s despite boasting three starting caliber backs in Joe Mixon, Jeremy Hill and Gio Bernard.

Bernard scored from 61 yards in a win over the Browns Sunday on a screen pass. If the Bengals hope to claw back into the race in a weak AFC North, their rushing attack could pave the way.
