During last night’s win over the Steelers, it seemed no one could get a hand on Bengals rookie Giovani Bernard.
After the game, everyone wanted a piece of him.
But after a breakout performance on a national stage, the young running back tried to shrug the spotlight off himself.
“It’s always good to get a win,” Bernard said, via Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer. “That’s how I am, I have always been the type of guy to always want to win. Personal statistics aren’t that much to me. We came out with a win and we needed this one.”
