Bell, Steelers run over Bengals

(TSX / STATS) -- PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers are learning that in spite of the explosive potential of their passing game, Le'Veon Bell sets the tone.

Bell carried 35 times for 134 yards against the NFL's second-ranked defense to lead the Steelers to a 29-14 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday at Heinz Field.

Knocked out of two prior seasons by Cincinnati hits to his right knee, Bell acknowledged before the game he feels the Bengals "target" him and said "I'm going to protect myself, play hard and try to get the W."
