Houston Texans at Cincinnati Bengals 9/14/2017: NFL Week 2 Predictions, Picks & Odds

NFL Week 2 TNF pick: Look for Bengals to rebound vs. overmatched Texans

The Bengals have now gone eight full quarters to start the season without scoring a touchdown at Paul Brown Stadium. "I got my feet wet a little bit".

That play set up the Texans' first score of the game to grab an early 3-0 lead.

"What's frustrating to me is we're not punching it in", cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said. "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, and keep moving forward with him". "Yes, I am. We should be better".

While Ross was active for the first time, Tyler Boyd, last year's second-round pick, was inactive for the first time. Thursday will be a physical game, but for the loser, an 0-2 hole to start the season may prove insurmountable.

Watson was 15 of 24 for 125 yards passing and added 67 yards rushing, highlighted by a 49-yard touchdown run in Houston's 13-9 victory over the Bengals. By the end of Sunday, Cincinnati's total should sit well outside of the top 25.

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

The Texans relied heavily on their running game against the Bengals because of numerous injuries to their tight ends and receivers.

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

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.

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

Both teams will go in search of their first win of the season, having lost their respective season-opening games on Sunday.

Don't expect things to improve for the Bengals in Week 3, when they head to Lambeau Field to take on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Starting the season 0-2 - with both losses coming at home - in a division with the Steelers and Ravens would be a rather deep hole.

The Houston Texans vs. Cincinnati Bengals game begins at 8:30 p.m. ET. A few a few passes across the field, the ball eventually found its way back into Dalton's hands. O'Brien did not publicly commit to Watson as his starter, but according to published reports that is the direction the Texans are leaning as they strive to revive an offensive pulse.
