Bengals running attack a bright spot in lopsided loss to Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens are always one of the NFL’s top defenses year-in-and-year-out; especially since Ray Lewis has been the middle linebacker.

When a team rushes for over 90 yards or even a 100, they know that it was earned.

One of the positives in the Cincinnati Bengals blowout loss to Baltimore on Monday night is their rushing totals of 28 carries for 129 yards and no loss yardage.

This is especially surprising since the Bengals offensive line features a new center and two young guards and a new featured back.

Replacing Cedric Benson is Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis who rushed 18 times for 91 yards.

The offensive line converted a couple of fourth-and-1 plays.

Free agent RB Cedric Benson visits Packers


After four productive seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, Cedric Benson was not re-signed. There were several reasons, but Benson did not like Jay Gruden’s pass-happy offense. But still, Benson was able to rush for over a 1,000 yards.

But since last season, Benson has been without a contract or any offers. Things are about to change.

The running back has been visiting with the Green Bay Packers, a team that needs depth at the position.

Benson’s agent, Eugene Parker has confirmed that his client has visited Green Bay but gave not indication a deal was signed.

The Cincinnati Bengals, according to sources around pro football, have decided not to re-sign Cedric Benson, their #1 running back. He did not like his role in the team’s new West Coast offense under new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden last season. The former Texas Longhorns’ running back led the Bengals in rushing four years in a row.

The 2011 AFC Wild-card team is in negotiations with former New England Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis to replace Benson.

Sources also say the deal should be completed by Thursday when all of the final details are worked out, a three-year deal.

Green-Ellis spent four years with New England, rushing for 181 times for 667 yards in 2011 with 11 touchdowns.

In his career, since leaving the University of Mississippi Rebels in 2008, the undrafted 26-year-old, in his career has rushed for 2,042 yards, a 4.1 average with 27 touchdowns.

He’ll team with the other running backs on the team, Bernard Scott, Brian Leonard and Cedric Peerman.

The Chicago Bears got rid of running back Cedric Benson in favor of Thomas Jones.

The Bears are probably secretly thinking they made a mistake.

The 28-year-old Benson, a former first round pick, fourth overall by the Bears in the 2005 NFL Draft out of Texas, has flourished in his four years with the Cincinnati Bengals after leaving the Windy City.

The Midland, Texas native gained 57 yards on 16 carries to run his season total to 1,016 yards. It marks his third straight 1,000-yard season. He is the third Cincinnati Bengals running back to earn at least three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, joining Corey Dillon (1997-2002) and Rudi Johnson (2004-2006).

Benson played for the Bears from 2005-2007.

Bengals hang with Steelers, but come up short in 4th quarter

CINCINNATI, OHIO — The first sellout crowd of the season at Paul Brown Stadium, 63,262, witnessed a classic AFC North Division game between Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. There was good defense, some scoring and several big plays.

The veteran Steelers beat the Bengals, 24-17.

Rashard Mendenhall scored two rushing touchdowns for the Steelers including the game winner of 9 yards late in the third quarter.

With the loss, the young Bengals 5-game winning streak comes to an end.

Cincinnati rookie quarterback Andy Dalton had a decent game of 15 for 30 for 170 yards, 2 TD’s and 2 interceptions. But he handled all of the Steelers schemes on defense better than expected.

With the two touchdowns on Sunday, Dalton now has 14 overall, the most of any NFL rookie quarterback in his first nine games since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Dalton did not suffer any sacks. The Steelers usually feast on rookie quarterbacks.

With the win, Pittsburgh is 7-3 and the Bengals fall to 6-3.

Top pass receivers in the game for Pittsburgh includes Antonio Brown 6 catches for 86 yards and Mike Wallace 6 catches for 54 yards. For Cincinnati, Andrew Hawkins 5 receptions for 56 yards and A.J. Green 2 for 36 yards and 1 touchdown.

On the ground, the Bengals Cedric Benson led all ball carriers with 57 yards on 15 carries.
