Bengals vs Steelers: Cedric Benson Running Hard | NFL Player Rankings
This week Cedric Benson and the Bengals were supposed to struggle and not win against the Steelers. Apparently, the Bengals did not get the memo as they have now upset both the Steelers and Packers, two weeks in a row.
Cedric Benson just keeps running
Mr. Benson has now officially restarted his career, and now he is the feature back we all thought he would be coming out of college. At the end of the last season, Benson ran hard and continued that tough running this season.
Today, on only 16 carries, Benson had 76 yards and his day was highlighted by a 23 yard touchdown.
Next week Benson plays the Browns, and he should enjoy another strong game as the Bengals are now a playoff contender.
Willie Parker has a good day
The Steelers have not been very good running this season, but Willie Parker had a good day. For the game Parker had 96 yards rushing and also added 36 yards receiving, with a touchdown.
Parker should continue his solid play when he faces defenses like the Browns this season, but I would bench him other than that. The Steelers need to prove they can be more consistent on the ground, before he’s a weekly fantasy football option.
