Benzema struck from a corner after goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois had won the initial header.
He said: "I think it's a good point for us. It could be important for the rest of the league campaign as we look to do well.
"What has changed compared to other seasons is the number of goals. I always try to help the team on the pitch and I have a lot of confidence in myself. The help of my team-mates is also important to me because they give me the ball and set up chances for me to score more goals.
"I want to win this league and that's why I try to help my team-mates on the pitch with my play and my words. I'm the third captain and I always try to help the team."
