Texans rookie Watson looks to improve after win in 1st start

17 September 2017

I asked two different National Football League personnel people, also ex-coaches, two separate teams, to evaluate, break down and to review the film and see if I was missing something and let's go through it. It was a bad night for the Bengals, and after only two games Cincinnati is on the verge of kissing its season goodbye.

Watson was far from ideal in Houston's ugly 13-9 win over Cincinnati.

You can also stream the game via PlayStation Vue, Sling TV or DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket streaming video service.

"This is our first time throwing this many balls since he's been on this team", Hopkins said.

The move comes after the Texans benched Week 1 starter Tom Savage after two lowly quarters against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, turning to Watson after halftime.

As bad as the run game looked, Andy Dalton and the passing game looked worse. The first-round pick used every bit of it in a conservative plan aimed at making the most of what the Texans had left on offense.

This game will be much like the last one these two played. Not only did they both suffer humiliating defeats in the NFL's opening weekend slate of games, but both teams' offenses were awful.

Speight's performance came under fire last week and will likely draw a fresh batch of criticism. "They fooled us. We thought we had the look we wanted and as soon as I went down to focus on the snap, they brought the house".

The Texans (1-1) got the most out of their depleted offence, and then let their defence do the rest. "I thought last night he really learned during the game, and that was pretty good to see". So what can we expect?

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.

As for the Bengals, they got shut out at home 20-0 by Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens.

Here are the studs and duds for Houston from the important win. "Even before Dalton's fourth interception of the day (of five total turnovers), the team's drives were ugly". Still, Dalton's history tells us this is unlikely to become a trend.

With Houston facing an uphill climb with second and 21, Lamar Miller would get six yards on a dump-off pass. I did. I spoke to all the leaders, I spoke to Coach (Bill O'Brien), I spoke to Deshaun, (offensive assistant/quarterbacks coach) Pat (O'Hara), all those guys. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney and company coming to town. There's no word on what Cushing has been busted for this time, but he's suspended for the next 10 games and will not appeal.

Fantasy owners, if no one else, want to see how this is going to shake out. He avoided the rush and ran 49 yards for a 10-3 lead late in the first half, dashing past befuddled defenders.
