I was invited to a VIP reception for the 2010 Ed Block Courage Award winners held at the Tremont Plaza Hotel last night, but I arrived an hour or so late because I was waiting for a phone call from Ken Rosenthal . When I finally arrived at the event, most of the award recipients were gone. But Bengals running back Cedric Benson and Cowboys wide receiver Sam Hurd were still there, and they desperately tried to keep the party alive into the eight o'clock hour. After a little bit of coaxing from the band, Benson, with a glass of white wine in one hand, hopped up on stage for a few songs.

Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Benson has been one of the more successful opponents of the Ravens', becoming in 2009 the first tailback since Jerome Bettis in 1996 to gain more than 100 yards twice against the Ravens in the same season. This year, Benson is one of the NFL leaders in a dubious category: fumbles. Benson is tied for second in fumbles by a running back with five. Only the Jacksonville Jaguars' Maurice Jones-Drew has fumbled more times (six). All of five of Benson's fumbles have occurred in the Bengals' past two games.

1. Joe Flacco protects the ball. He tied a career high with four interceptions against the Bengals earlier this year. Since then, Flacco has thrown four interceptions in his past 13 games. 2. Stop Bengals' running game. Cedric Benson has the worst yards-per-carry average (3.5) among the top 35 rushers in the NFL. But Benson had two 100-yard rushing games against Ravens last season. 3. Finish strong. The Ravens have scored only one second-half touchdown in the past six games. The Bengals have allowed 126 points in the fourth quarter, the most they've given up in any quarter.

After surrendering 109 yards to Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, the Ravens rush defense gets another difficult assignment in Cincinnati Bengals tailback Cedric Benson. Benson's 593 yards this season rank a modest 14th in the NFL, but he has gained more yards on the ground than the Ravens' own Ray Rice (559 yards). And two years ago, Benson became the first back since the Miami Dolphins' Ricky Williams (2002-2003) to gain more than 100 yards in consecutive meetings against the Ravens.

A three-year drought during which no running back was among the NFL draft's top 10 picks will end quickly and emphatically Saturday. Expectations are that three running backs will go in the first eight picks, two from the same team. The Class of 2005 features the tag-team duo of Ronnie Brown and Carnell "Cadillac" Williams of Auburn and Cedric Benson of Texas. Brown, a versatile, straight-ahead runner, should be the first back taken, no later than the fourth pick. Among the teams looking for a running back early are the Miami Dolphins (second pick)

Tonight's bowl games Holiday Bowl Texas (10-2) vs. Washington State (9-3) Time, TV: 8, ESPN Line: Texas by 9 1/2 Why you should watch: This annually is one of the best bowls, and despite the point spread, this one should be close. About Texas: The Longhorns come in on a six-game winning streak, including blowouts of Nebraska and Oklahoma State. They scored at least 40 points in five of those games. Junior TB Cedric Benson (116.1 ypg, 20 TDs) is Texas' key offensive player. LB Derrick Johnson (116 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, four picks)

Let's not hear any whining about the referees this week, OK? The Cincinnati Bengals won this one fair and square. The Bengals are for real. There's no question about it, not after their gritty 17-14 win over the mistake-prone Ravens on Sunday that leaves Cincinnati atop the AFC North at 4-1 and leaves this town in shock. Yep, shock is the right word, given the incredible expectations heaped upon this team since the start of training camp. The Ravens were going to the Super Bowl - that's all you heard on the sports talk shows.

— The Ravens look to stake a claim to first place in the AFC North and restore some defensive pride in today's grudge match with the Pittsburgh Steelers. It's unlikely that Ray Lewis and teammates can return home with one and not the other. To beat a Steelers team without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, the Ravens must stop running back Rashard Mendenhall. And to stop the NFL's fourth-leading rusher, the Ravens must ratchet up their play from last Sunday, when Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis — who?
