In the NFL, a rookie running back burned the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday night. Giovani Bernard scored his first two NFL touchdowns as the Bengals doubled up the Steelers 20-10 in Cincinnati. It was a 10-10 game in the third quarter until Bernard turned a short pass into a 27-yard TD.

In baseball news, Derek Jeter was back, and the Yankees felt a lot better.

The Yankees captain singled on his first pitch of the season, scored a run and went 1 for 4 with an RBI groundout in his return from a nine-month layoff to help New York beat Kansas City 8-4 Thursday. He left for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning.

Daniel Nava hit a two-out single in the top of the 10th inning to score pinch-runner Jackie Bradley Jr., and the Boston Red Sox rallied from a four-run deficit for the second time in a four-game series to beat the Mariners 8-7 in 10 innings.
