We continue our series with the Local Site for the Bengals, RiverFrontBall. You can read Part 1 here2 here and 3 here. Now on to Part 4 for today and hopefully their prediction before tomorrow’s game.

Quick backs, like Reggie Bush, have given the Browns some problems, especially in the passing game. Your rookie, Giovani Bernard, has shown up in highlight tapes often in the past few weeks, how has he been a game changer for the Bengals? Will BJGE get a big load on Sunday or most carries/snaps go to the rookie?

Gio is an incredibly talented rookie with a tremendous upside. Everyone saw how big of a game changer he can be with his incredible run against the Miami Dolphins. Gio is a good first and second down back. BJGE is a great 3rd down back, his brute force has come in handy for the Bengals this season.
When you look at the stats the Bengals split the carries between the two backs. Neither back has had a break out year statistically. But Gio with his flash has made some amazing runs and had some great catches, those are game changing moments at times which are better than having a huge statistic year.
As for this Sunday it looks like it is going to pour and be windy in Cincinnati on Sunday so the run game will be very important. I’d imagine both backs would split the carries relatively evenly. If one will get more carries look for it to be BJGE.
