ST. LOUIS, Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Cedric Benson ran for 76 yards and a late touchdown for Cincinnati Sunday and the Bengals kept their playoff hopes alive with a 20-13 win over St. Louis.
Benson's 4-yard TD with 9:14 remaining put Cincinnati ahead 20-6 and assured the result for the Bengals (8-6), who broke a two-game losing skid.
