JJ Watt and the defense can help Houston hit form in Cincinnati

JJ Watt and the defense can help Houston hit form in Cincinnati

Ross, 21, missed the Bengals' season-opening 20-0 loss to the Baltimore Ravens after spraining his knee in the preseason finale on August 31.

The Houston Texans (0-1) travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals (0-1) with Deshaun Watson slated for his first of many National Football League starts. Watson saw playing time in week one but did not start.

It's not the NFL's fault that there aren't a lot of very good quarterbacks out there right now.

Other than Watson's stand-out moment, it was only the kickers that got on the scoresheet, Randy Bullock's three efforts giving the Bengals their first points of the season while the game was bookended by Kai Fairbairn's 26 and 42-yard efforts in the first and fourth quarter.

To make the climb a little steeper, the Texans lost a slew of players to injuries on Sunday afternoon, Tight ends Ryan Griffin, C.J Fiedorowicz, LB Brian Cushing, WR Bruce Ellington all left the game with concussions and Cushing will be out after being suspended for a second PED violation.

With just:02 showing on the clock in the first frame, Luke Strebel booted a 37-yard field goal to knot the score at 3-all. The teams traded field goals throughout the first half and the Wolverines emerged with a 9-6 lead.

"Zig-zag, zig-zag, zig-zag, tired, tired, tired", Watt said, describing the multi-lateral play.

The teams traded field goals in the second half as Ka'imi Fairbairn's 42-yarder with 2:01 left gave Houston a 13-9 lead. It's the 15th time the Bengals have started 0-2.

An extremely disappointing and embarrassing start to the season for both these teams with the Texans smacked by AFC South rival Jaguars and the Bengals kept scoreless at home against their AFC North rival, Ravens.

Watson finished with only 125 passing yards in the 13-9 victory, but he busted off an insane 49-yard touchdown rush.

After a scoreless first game, they ended up with just nine points Thursday.

Ryanair cancels hundreds of flights, sparking outrage from customers
Ryanair also said the cancellations, which amount to 2pc of its network, won't have an impact on earnings in September and October.

With a backup quarterback the caliber of AJ McCarron it only makes sense that questions about a quarterback change would come up.

On the final play with multiple laterals, Dalton got the ball back and threw it to centre Russell Bodine, who was levelled by J.J. Watt to end the game. While the Texans offensive line is partly to blame for Savage's performance in the Jaguars game, he hasn't been able to show that he is the long-term answer for the Texans.

"I think the guys who stepped in did a great job". On Thursday, he had six tackles, knocked down one pass and hit Dalton once.

Cincinnati won the first three games of the series including beginning in the Texans' inaugural year of 2002 until October 2005.

Dalton has completed 36-of-66 passes for 394 yards with no touchdowns and four interceptions this season. Their next game is on September 24th against the New England Patriots.
