View our Cincinnati Bengals vs Houston Texans tips below. 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. They are the first team without a TD in consecutive home games since the 1939 Eagles.

Dalton lets Bengals down again, now what? . "He's going to make some mistakes, and it's on us to keep working with him and minimize his mistakes and get rid of them, not repeat them".

Houston starting cornerbacks Johnathan Joseph (right shoulder) and Kevin Johnson (left knee) were hurt in the second half and didn't return, adding to the Texans' mounting injury woes. "Whatever that is, play-calling, whatever it is, we've got to do that". That's it. It's a superstar-driven league.

"I just worked through it".

And hard to explain, although Dalton tried. The Bengals were shut out at home for the first time since 2001, turning the ball over five times and allowing five sacks.

"You just benched him after 31 plays". If Miller can get into the end zone on his first try, that would be a big relief for fantasy owners. Texans coach Bill O'Brien said his decision on the starting quarterback will be made with the best interests of the team in mind.

"We had a down game, I had a down game", Dalton said. "But that was a good play by (Jackson)".

Four series later, the Texans would get the ball at their own ten yard-line, and drive down the field. He showed poise and accuracy down the stretch, grinding out precious time and moving the Texans into position for the final field goal. "So that's a learning experience". You have to sit there and blame yourself because I did it. You always want to learn from stuff like this. Deshaun Watson might be a solid starter one day, but that day is not today. I get to grow from this. The unit was the best in the business without him previous year. Houston's defense is going to control this game and could very well score the only touchdown in it. After that Houston rang up a five game winning streak including those two playoff wins.

Offensively, the Bengals are averaging 0.0 points and 221.0 total yards (144.0 in passing and 77.0 in rushing per game). Savage threw for only 62 yards against the Jaguars and was sacked six times. The Bengals had been 4-1 in games when Atkins had two sacks.

But Eifert was penalized for an illegal touch because he stepped out of bounds before catching the pass. Don't be surprised to see running back Joe Mixon figure more into the gameplan along with Giovani Bernard. "That's pretty basic stuff".

Dalton has completed 36-of-66 passes for 394 yards with no touchdowns and four interceptions this season. "I honestly don't know what it looks like".

The real shocker though is how the supposed quarterback guru doesn't see what's so plain about the guys he is choosing - they just stink. "My receivers and everyone that was downfield did a good job of blocking for me". Deshaun Watson might be the franchise QB the Texans need, but a road win over a veteran team on a short week in his first start might be too much to ask.

The two teams combined for seven points last week - all by the Texans. He finished the game 12 of 23 for 102 yards and a touchdown.

Losing 10-9 heading into the fourth quarter, the Bengals fell to 16-82-1 when trailing after three quarters under Lewis.
