Hill joined Ciannati Bengals to kick-start his NFL career signing a four-year contract that saw him earn a whopping $3.71 million as salary. He made his professional debut in the game against the Baltimore Ravens.

In 1997 he hit a string of records for the Bengals by being the first rookie to reach 1,000 yards (a record at the time that was previously held by Corey Dillon since 1997). His record of 1,124 rushing yards was also the most among rookies in his first season and 8th overall in the entire NFL. Jeremy Hill's 5.1 yards per carrying average put him on the second spot amongst NFL running backs (only Justin Forsett beat him to the number one spot on the list).

On January 9, 2016, Hill upped the ante by running for 50 yards on 12 carries and got a touchdown in the Cincinnati Bengals' AFC's Wildcard game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But dropped the ball and this led to a Steeler's fight back that resulted in an 18-16 victory with less than two minutes to go. However, he finished the season tied with Devonta Freeman, Adrian Peterson, and DeAngelo Williams for the most rushing touchdowns in the National Football League.
In the 2016 Bengals' season-opener, Hill attained nine rushing runs for 31 rushing yards and got a touchdown in a 23–22 victory against the New York Jets.
