Every week we come up with a few awards posts for our readers to vote on. The most obvious is the Most Valuable Player award, while the Play of the Game one is also entertaining to debate. However, the "Unsung Hero" selection is for contributors who may have gone overlooked in the Bengals' 31-10 win over the Browns on Thursday night.
Cast your vote and sound off on your selection for the Bengals' Week 9 "Unsung Hero of the Week"!
WR Marvin Jones: While Tyler Eifert had the looks in the red zone, Jones made plays between the 20s for major yardage. He nabbed five catches for 78 yards and was the team's leading yardage leader on the evening.
RB Jeremy Hill: Giovani Bernard was the leading rusher, but Hill still ground out tough yardage on a defense that was undoubtedly keying on him. Hill had frustrating runs where he stutter-stepped instead of plowing downhill, but he still had some nice runs on the way to a 15-carry, 52-yard effort against Cleveland.
WR Mohamed Sanu: The veteran wide receiver once again showed off his versatility in Hue Jackson's offense, with carries and catches. He had three catches for 25 yards--two of which went for first downs. His big play came in the second half with a reverse he took for 25 yards on his way for a touchdown.
K Mike Nugent: There have been ups and downs throughout Nugent's career as the Bengals' placekicker, but he's had a few nice games over the past few weeks. He had seven total points on the evening, with four extra points and a 28-yard field goal.
DT Geno Atkins: He's been rotated for the past couple of weeks, but has maintained his productivity. He was part of a defensive unit that held the Browns to 69 total rushing yards, while garnering a sack and four total tackles.
