Texans and Bengals Both Looking to Bounce Back

on Sep 13, 2017 |

This week’s NFL games get started on Thursday night with the Texans traveling to Cincinnati (-6). Both of these teams got shredded last week and are looking to get on track in week 2. The Bengals had a putrid showing in week 1 putting up a goose egg on offense against the Ravens (at home no less). The biggest question in this game is which Andy Dalton will show up? Will it be the red rifle who put up 268 yards and 1 TD in the last meeting between these teams, or will it be the 170 yard 4 INT ‘effort’ from last week?

We can probably chalk week 1 up to a slow start (or just one of those games, or who knows what) as Dalton is 1 of 2 QBs in franchise history (Carson Palmer) with multiple seasons with 4,000+ passing yards and ranked 4th in the AFC with 53 completions of 25+ yards last season. Assuming Dalton didn’t forget how to play football over the summer, we can expect a stronger performance from the Bengals side of the ball.

Stats the Bengals Like

The Texans had a similarly awful week 1 getting sacked and sacked and sacked again (10 in all!) by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Deshaun Watson, the #12 selection in the draft got his career started after Tom Savage exited the game, and managed 102 yards of passing that resulted in 1 touchdown (1 more than Andy Dalton). You know it wasn’t a great day when you are out-passed by Blake Bortles (125 yards).  The defense is going to need to keep the Texans in the game this week (unless Dalton reverts to whatever he was last week) and the Texans need to figure out their quarterback situation.

Stats the Texans Like

This has to be viewed as a ‘bounce back’ game for both teams and could easily be closer than the line of -6 for the Bengals. Heck, there’s a plausible scenario that Dalton stinks it up again while Deshaun Watson (or Tom Savage) feeds Lamar Miller and DeAndre Hopkins again and again (and again) leading to a big Texans win.
