Last night's Monday Night Football contest between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers wrapped up a great weekend of NFL action.  Giovani Bernard was the MVP in this one with his first NFL rushing TD and later catching a short pass and taking it 27 yards to the endzone.  BenJarvus Green-Ellis was still the teams workhorse, with 22 carries for 75 yards, but much like the way C.J. Spiller and Jamaal Charles were introduced to the league, Bernard is going to make the most of his limited touches.Andy Dalton completed 25 of his 45 attempts for 280 yards, connecting with both A.J. Green (14 targets) and Jermaine Gresham (9) 6 times.  Mohamed Sanu (8) was able to bring in 5 receptions.The Steelers struggled on offense as expected, but Felix Jones was the Steelers running back for the night after Isaac Redman got injured on the kickoff.  Jones took just 10 carries, 37 yards.  The Steelers face the Chicago Bears next so avoid him at all costs!Ben Roethlisberger completed 20 passes for 250 yards with 6 going to Antonio Brown and 5 to Emmanuel Sanders.  Brown was only able to manage 57 yards while Sanders racked up 78 including one ALMOST TD on a 43 yard pass play but was tackled from behind at the 1!  That play set up a 1-yd fade to Derek Moye, the 6'5 rookie out of Penn St.Outside of Giovani, there was little done in this matchup to help any fantasy owners, unless of course you have the Bengals defense!  They sacked Big Ben twice, picked him off once and scooped up a fumble from David Paulson all while holding Pittsburgh to just 10 points!
