Texans VS Bengals Thursday night, LIVE STREAM. Houston Texans vs. Cincinnati Bengals: Prediction, preview, pick to win, NFL Week 2, Houston Texans vs Cincinnati Bengals: Game time, TV schedule, online stream, odds and more
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is coming off one of the worst performances of his career as he threw four interceptions and lost a fumble last week. He will face a formidable Texans defensive front featuring J.J .Watt. The Bengals’ suspect offensive line needs to figure out a way to protect Dalton and prevent tipped balls, two of which resulted in interceptions last week.
Both teams come into this game with something to prove, having lost decisively in home openers in which they were favored to win. Neither team wants to go home losing, but this game may be more important to the Bengals who are playing their second game at home before traveling to Green Bay in Week 3.
The Texans were burdened by a slew of injuries at the tight end position, losing Ryan Griffin, C.J. Fiedorowicz and Stephen Anderson during the course of the afternoon. Linebacker Brian Cushing and wide receiver Bruce Ellington joined Griffin and Fiedorowicz in the concussion protocol with head injuries.
