Watson leads Texans to win in first career start

The Bengals were blanked at home by the Baltimore Ravens following an absolutely awful showing by quarterback Andy Dalton.

The Bengals' quest for a first win continues with a formidable looking trip to Green Bay in Week Three, while a refreshed Texans will head to New England for a repeat of their play-off defeat in January. "Just show it to me".

The former SC defensive end got himself in the right place at the right time against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football. "I've got a lot more opportunities to come". "He's got good vision".

While Ross was active for the first time, Tyler Boyd, last year's second-round pick, was inactive for the first time.

Heisman trophy victor Watson was 15-for-24 passing for 125 yards against the Bengals, but more importantly, he was four for four for 46 yards and had two rushes for 53 yards including a 49-yard touchdown run on the Texans' lone touchdown drive.

The two sacks tied Atkins' career high, which he had recorded five other times.

The Texans entered the game with 20 players on their injury report and lost two cornerbacks during the contest. The Cincinnati offense reached the red zone three times, and couldn't punch it in, instead settling for three field goals.

But Lascelles, who headed wide from a similar opportunity before the break, met another Ritchie delivery to win it. Elliot also managed to beat away Shaqiri's powerfully-struck 51st-minute snapshot .

"I looked up there, and he was open", Dalton said.

A similarly lacklustre effort could see Lewis ousted before the weekend and there is a good chance the visitors can help nudge him towards the exit with victory at Paul Brown Stadium in a relatively low-scoring encounter.

That being said, his touchdown displayed the trademark toughness, perseverance and playmaking ability that Clemson fans know and love.

The teams would trade punts throughout the rest of the game until a little under two minutes to go.

It's also the first time in franchise history the Bengals have failed to score a touchdown in back-to-back home games. Andy Dalton has generally been a solid National Football League quarterback, especially when he has both WR A.J. Green and TE Tyler Eifert healthy. To make matters even more hard, the schedules don't get any easier in Week 3, with Houston heading to New England and Cincinnati traveling to Green Bay following Thursday night's clash.

Judging by the performances of their blockers in the opening week of the season, it's fair to wonder if there will be more sacks than points in Thursday night's game between the Texans and Bengals.
