The Cincinnati Bengals are winless through two games and Joe Mixon is taking the blame.

Mixon has rushed for just 27 yards this season, averaging 1.6 yards per carry.

"I take it personally on me," Mixon said. "These two performances I've been displaying have been terrible. You call me the peon right now. I've got to go home and do some re-evaluating, some looking at the man in the mirror, which is me, and got to step up, making something happen."

Just last year, Mixon finished fourth in the NFL in rushing (1,168 yards) in just 14 games and scored nine touchdowns while averaging more than 100 yards from scrimmage.
