Texans Desperate For A Bounce Back Win In Cincinnati On Thursday Night

17 September 2017

Covering almost half the football field in a hurry, Watson provided the primary early highlight for a sluggish Texans offense that struggled to consistently move the football against the Bengals.

Tom Savage had to go into damage control mode this week after his agent blasted the Houston Texans for benching him in last Sunday's 29-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Messi was linked with a £275million summer move to Manchester City while Iniesta looked certain to sign for Juventus next season. BARCELONA are to test Liverpool's resolve with another tilt at landing Philippe Coutinho , according to reports .

According to Smith, no team in the last 100 years began a year with six quarters without a score-a fate the Bengals avoided with a pair of Randy Bullock field goals in the second quarter. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis says Dalton's job is not jeopardy, but another start or two like this from Dalton and it would be hard to defend not giving A.J. McCarron a chance. Perhaps Houston could survive that in the traditionally weak AFC South, and if nothing else the Texans' season will remain meaningful as Watson begins his development as an National Football League starter. Deshaun Watson might be a solid starter one day, but that day is not today.

"What we talk to quarterbacks about all the time is put us in the play that you can", Texans QBs coach Sean Ryan said.

ABOUT THE TEXANS (0-1): Reports out of Houston indicate that Watson, who guided Clemson to the national championship in January, will be under center for Thursday's matchup if he is not hindered by an ankle injury during Tuesday's practice.

Yes, it's different in possession now for us if you have a target man up front. "You learn every day from him". Blind said: "I don't need to describe what kind of player he is and how important he is for the team".

No Bengals team has made the playoffs after starting 0-2. The Texans were bad on both sides of the ball, and need to get into shape in a hurry if they want to contend for the division.

Last week we were so overjoyed for Thursday Night Football, as we were finally blessed with the return of the regular season. Four days after three tight ends went out in the opener, the Texans' two top corners were knocked out against Cincinnati: Johnathan Joseph left with a shoulder injury and Kevin Johnson sustained a left knee injury. Watt, a defensive leader for the Texans, toughed it out. Lay the points with the home team on a short week. He's going to see things that he's never seen before, seeing them for the first time, and he'll learn from it. Being 0-2 without scoring a single touchdown in those two games?

On first down with 1:18 left in the first half, Watson dropped back only to get his official "welcome to the NFL" moment, courtesy of Bengals All-Pro DT Geno Atkins.
