Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Benson had a quiet afternoon against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He wound up running the ball just 13 times for 52 yards. The Steelers' strong defense held the Bengals to just seven points, an Andy Dalton touchdown pass to A.J. Green.
His one-game suspension just a distant memory, Benson played a big part in the Cincinnati Bengals surprising resurgence this season. Last week, Benson rolled up 106 rushing yards on 21 carries. He also scored a touchdown in win over the Cleveland Browns.
Running gets a little tougher in Week 13. Benson was ranked 30th out of all NFL running backs this week, according to Fake Teams, SB Nation's fantasy sports site. Through 12 weeks of play, Benson had 740 rushing yards on 188 carries with five touchdowns.
