Houston Texans beat Cincinnati Bengals thanks to DeShaun Watson touchdown

Texans need increased output from Hopkins

The Houston Texans defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 13-9 Thursday night in Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati. Three plays later, Cincinnati could not get it into the end zone and had to settle for a field goal by ex-Houston Texans kicker Randy Bullock and a tie game.

It came in the first half, but given the way the Bengals are playing on offense, it was indeed the decisive play.

Texans at Bengals was a game controlled by defense.

Houston, which clinched the AFC South with a 12-10 win over the Bengals past year, has won its last two head-to-head clashes and seven of eight against Cincinnati. "He did a lot of different things, he blitzed off the edge, got a sack, caused a fumble, had several tackles". Coach Marvin Lewis said after the game it was not medical related without elaborating. As a result, the first-year Bengals wide receiver is saying that one play doesn't make a National Football League career, according to Geoff Hobson of the team's official website.




With the game tied at 3 in the Houston Texans and Cincinnati Bengals game in the second-quarter, someone needed to step up and make a play on offense. As I said in the very beginning this is, all of us, we all share the responsibility for that - all of the assistant coaches and the players as well. The Bengals have some beasts on the defensive line, led by Geno Atkins, and they'll be in Watson's face all night. "He's got good vision. That was a game-sealing touchdown right there". Take it one day at a time, focus in - all the common clich├ęs were spouted around. Additionally, each of the three tight ends was out against Cincinnati with an injury.

"I looked up there, and he was open", Dalton said. Starting the season 0-2 - with both losses coming at home - in a division with the Steelers and Ravens would be a rather deep hole.

The Bengals are 1-8 in their last nine games against the Texans, and in the last six they have scored an average of 11.7 points.

It doesn't get any easier for the Bengals who will play at Green Bay a week from Sunday. Instead, he threw a ball too low for Brandon LaFell, invigorating the home crowd's boos. O'Brien did not publicly commit to Watson as his starter, but according to published reports that is the direction the Texans are leaning as they strive to revive an offensive pulse.
