Fantasy Football Champs:
Running back Cedric Benson is probable for Week 14 vs. Houston, according to John Clayton of ESPN.

The Bengals enter Sunday's game against Houston with the league's fifth-ranked defense, but one area where they have not excelled in is turnovers.
After the defense went three straight games earlier in the season with a defensive touchdown, their knack for getting turnovers has declined. Over the past five games, they have just four takeaways and have turned the ball over...

Following an improbable 6-2 start for a team many pundits said would be the worst in the league (for the record Vegas had their over/under win total at 4 ½ in the preseason) the Bengals have dropped three of the last four, and are in survival mode for a coveted...
In a game that they desperately need to hang on to the sixth seed in the AFC, the Bengals have their first lead at the half since the Seattle game in Week 7. They have given up six plays of 18 yards or more but have 10 points off turnovers.
Cedric Benson is having his best game of the season with 92 yards on 13 carries and Andy Dalton is an efficient 9 of 17 for 112 yards. Two of...
