The Texans Head To Cincinnati As Both Teams Eye Their First Win

Adjust Comment Print

Cincinnati is also 18-7-2 in their last 27 games in September, and they're 4-1 ATS int heir last five home games versus a team with a losing road record. In 2015, the Texans lost starting quarterback Brian Hoyer to a concussion, turning to backup T.J. Yates.

Maybe. Cincinnati held another terrible team to 266 yards, TOTAL yards.

The Texans relied heavily on their rushing attack, with 168 yards, including Watson's 67. The teams didn't meet in 2006 or 2007, but the Texans had their biggest win over their AFC rivals in 2008 in a 35-6 victory in Houston. On paper, Watson appears to be the logical choice given the porous condition of the Texans offensive line. The offensive scheme made things worse.

The Bengals offense has not scored a touchdown in eight quarters this season. You can download the app for free at App Store, Google Play, and Microsoft App Store. Dalton threw four interceptions picks and his offense put up a goose egg on the scoreboard. But he was still disgusting! O'Brien has the saving grace of finally having a true franchise quarterback he can work with, and his background suggests he will do good work with Watson moving forward. Know when it's time to get the ball out of your hands or know when it's time to tuck and go. After traveling to Green Bay next, the schedule gets a little easier, with games against Cleveland and Buffalo. That's basically what the Bengals did in the past.

Ever since Hue Jackson left, Dalton and the Bengals offense haven't looked good.

Come Thursday night, the 29-year-old will be aiming for a much better showing.

Coach Marvin Lewis said prior to the Week 1 game that Ross could play after returning to practice, however he was made a game-day inactive. He had to reassure the press of this after two games.

At that rate, AJ McCarron might be on the field soon for Cincinnati because of the battering Dalton is taking. Here's the latest Texans vs. Bengals game recap including top performers, stats, standings, and what's next for the teams.

Six NFL teams opened the season scoring in single digits. We might have to rethink that.

The Bengals took the opening kickoff and held the ball for 8 minutes and 34 seconds on a 17-play, 63-yard drive, which resulted in a third Bullock field goal from 30 yards out to make it 10-9.

Bonus aside: There are more bad teams in the National Football League this year than there are good teams.
