Jeremy Hill, Giovani Bernard climbing Bengals leaderboard

The Cincinnati Bengals running back duo of Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard are climbing the franchise leaderboard for most career rushing yards.

Hill entered the season ranked 15th on the Cincinnati Bengals franchise career rushing list. If he keeps up his current pace, he will pass Ken Anderson, Paul Robinson, Giovani Bernard, and Larry Kinnebrew, and will be ranked 11th at the end of the season.

Bernard entered the season ranked 14th on the Bengals career rushing leaderboard. He has since passed Ken Anderson, and now sits at 13th. If Bernard maintains his current pace throughout the season, he will pass Paul Robinson for 12th, but he will be passed by Hill and will finish the season ranked 13th.

Bernard was drafted by the Bengals in 2013, and Hill was drafted by them in 2014. They have been sharing time in the Bengals backfield since 2014.

Given the progress that they have made in their relatively short tenure in the NFL, Bernard and Hill could end up among the top Bengals rushers ever.

The Cincinnati Bengals franchise leader in career rushing yards is Corey Dillon with 8,061 yards.
