Connect to modem with USB cable

I just bought an AC1200 WiFi Router.  We have a DirectTV cable modem, and it doesn't have an ethernet connection.  Can I connect the WiFi Router to the cable modem by USB?

You connect to the internet with your router via the ethernt port on the back, with an ethernet cable. What's the model number of you modem?
