Let's take a look at some of the Bengals players that showed up the biggest on Monday Night Football against the Broncos. Cast your vote and sound off on your winner!

Jeremy Hill, RB: The Bengals' rookie back had another huge night, mostly thanks to a first quarter 85-yard touchdown run. He finished the night with 22 carries for 147 yards and a score. It was another game where the Hill posted a high yards-per-carry average, this time sporting a 6.7 average in primetime.

Adam Jones, CB/KR: The versatile veteran impacted the game on a couple of fronts. On defense, Jones had four tackles and an interception. On special teams, Jones had a 21-yard punt return and an 80-yard kickoff return, setting up drives that resulted in 10 points.

Dre Kirkpatrick, CB: The embattled corner stepped in after Terence Newman was ineffective on the evening and came up huge. Kirkpatrick had two picks, one going for a gigantic touchdown in the fourth quarter. He also had a tackle.

Mike Nugent, K: The veteran kicker just continues to roll since his miss a couple months ago versus the Panthers. He had three field goals on the evening, including a big 49-yarder right before half and four extra points.

Andrew Whitworth, OT: Even though he was a Pro Bowl snub, Whitworth proved that he was worthy of a nomination for MVP. He blanketed DeMarvus Ware, who is having a solid season, and was part of a unit that gained 207 yards on the ground. Whitworth has not allowed a hit or sack on Andy Dalton since Week 2.

Jermaine Gresham, TE: It's been another year full of ups and downs for the embattled tight end, but he showed up pretty big on Monday Night. He led the team in catches with nine, receiving yards with 62 and had a crucial touchdown reception.
