After missing the last two weeks with a hip flexor injury, Cedric Benson came back to a familiar spot – carrying the load with 110 yards on 36 carries. It is the fifth game in 10 this year he has had 25 or more carries and his third with over 30.
Said quarterback Carson Palmer of Benson’s day: “He didn’t look like he missed any time. He had his explosion and his quick cuts back. He was running powerfully and falling forward at the ends of runs.”
