Mixon accidentally threw his helmet into a referee, causing the unsuspecting official to fall down:
The 23-year-old running back apologized to the referee he never saw coming on Twitter:
Mixon put together a performance to be excited about against the Browns. The 2017 second-round pick out of Oklahoma rushed for 162 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries. It was his fourth 100-yard rushing game this season, finishing with 1,137 yards and five touchdowns on 278 carries overall.
The 2-14 Bengals can now officially put 2019 behind them and look forward to their No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft.
