Roundup: Benson can move on from Bears now

What’s done is done, and could Bengals RB Cedric Benson feel any better about it?

Benson tried to downplay the revenge factor heading into Sunday’s game against the Bears, who gave up on him two years ago. And after going off on his former team for a career-high 189 yards and a touchdown on 37 carries in a 45-10 victory, the Cincinnati Enquirer writes that Benson is now ready to move on from the Bears:

Benson had to practically put himself through yoga sessions this week to keep from going into overdrive about this game.

“I didn’t want it to be revenge,” he said. “I knew I was going to be faced with getting over-emotional about it at times.”
