The Bengal passing attack found new life Sunday in a swirling wind against the league’s number 1 defense, and the two men most directly responsible are up for weekly awards.
WR Jerome Simpson is a finalist for the “GMC NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE WEEK.” The award is given for the “best moment or play of the week that represents determination and perseverance.” Simpson caught 6 passes for 124 yards and 2 touchdowns in just his second start.

QB Carson Palmer is up for this week’s FedEx Air Player of the Week award for his performance. Palmer was 10-for-10 in the first half and eventually went 16-for-21 with 269 yards and four touchdowns. Palmer threw two to the aforementioned Simpson, plus one each to rookies Jordan Shipley and Jermaine Gresham. Palmer threw no interceptions, and finished with the best QB rating of his career at 157.2.

As a side note, both Simpson and Palmer were nominated for AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors as well, but Kansas City’s Dwayne Bowe took home the hardware.
