That's almost four score, which is one more score than the Bengals have posted after managing three field goals in Thursday night's 13-9 loss to Houston on the heels of a 20-0 blanking in the opener .
"I don't think he's taken a step back", Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis told reporters about Dalton after the game. Green who's one of the best receivers in the National Football League, sometimes it's seems as though Andy Dalton just doesn't know what he has. Deshaun Watson finished 12-of-23 for the game, throwing for 102 yards, a touchdown and an interception. All three starting tight ends made the inactive list and no moves were made to bring back Duane Brown to help this terrible offensive line.
It will certainly help the Texans that they don't have to play another game for 10 days. Still, he led the Texans to a win, which is something you can't say about Tom Savage. T.J. Johnson replaced Hopkins in Sunday's game and could make his second career start on Thursday.
After an embarassing home loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, the Houston Texans were looking for redemption. But, if the competition was even close between Savage and rookie Deshaun Watson, Watson should've gotten the call to start the season. "I thought last night he really learned during the game, and that was pretty good to see". "You've got to give him different looks, not just drop into coverage", cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said.
Dalton's numbers weren't overwhelming bad Thursday as he went 20-for-35 passing for 224 yards.
Texans vs. Bengals news:"While we can all be optimistic that Houston can continue to coast based on the strength of our defense, lack of solid divisional opponents, and scoring three points at a time, that model simply isn't realistically sustainable".
WATT BACK IN FORM: J.J. Watt raised more than $30 million for those affected when Hurricane Harvey hit Texas.
The Texans relied heavily on their rushing attack, with 168 yards, including Watson's 67. His 49-yard touchdown scamper was the biggest play of the game. "I love the guy, he drafted me".
After 15 scoreless possessions to begin the season, the Bengals finally got on the scoreboard with a 39-yard field goal by Randy Bullock, set up by A.J. Green's 50-yard catch. Linebacker Brian Cushing is serving a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
