Analysis: Mixon had several nice runs, avoiding tacklers to get extra yards. He's competing with Jeremy Hill for playing time, though it certainly appears at this point that Mixon has the edge. Hill had 26 yards on seven carries Friday and is coming off a pair of poor seasons as the lead back. "Once I got that first carry and got the first-game jitters out of the way, I adjusted," Mixon said. "It was just playing football."
