Texans-Bengals game: Deshaun Watson avenges Atkins sack with crazy TD run

The clothes and the moment were a flawless fit for the national champ. The whole sideline went insane.

Two plays later, Watson escaped a collapsing pocket on 3rd-and-15, broke a tackle and followed some exceptional downfield blocking en route to the game's only touchdown. On first down, Watson was sacked and lost 11-yards.

The two teams combined for seven points last week - all by the Texans. 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. "Yes, I am. We should be better". "It's something that you're constantly working with the quarterbacks on and we still work on it and always will".

It's also the first time in franchise history the Bengals have failed to score a touchdown in back-to-back home games.

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. "I thought last night he really learned during the game, and that was pretty good to see".

Lamar Miller: I don't like this matchup for fantasy football specifically because of the Texans offensive line.

Watson was happy to get the victory in his first start, but knows that he has much more work to do for the Texans to continue to be successful.

WR John Ross is expected to make his National Football League debut with the Cincinnati Bengals against the Houston Texans on Thursday, multiple outlets reported.

"I think the emotion of it and just settling down is something that's probably the biggest thing", Watt said. "He just has that ability and that knack". However, one had to bounce back, and it was the Texans. But much like we saw with Dak Prescott past year, he won't be able to out-duel the best quarterbacks in the game. He was taken to the locker room shortly before the half, but returned for the second half.

In the opening quarter, the Bengals were at the Houston 43, when Andy Dalton completed a 12-yard pass to John Ross who promptly fumbled the pigskin, the Texans Jadeveon Clowney recovered the ball and returned it for 48 yards to the Cincinnati 20 yard line.

Dalton's next pass was incomplete, forcing the Bengals to settle for a field goal that made it 10-6 after a 17-play, 63-yard drive to begin the third quarter that took 8:34 off the clock. He has struggled against the Texans, his hometown team - he grew up in suburban Katy.

Dalton is 1-5 career against his hometown team, including a pair of first-round playoff losses. He had a couple passes fall incomplete that could've and should've been intercepted, but managed to throw zero true interceptions. Neither the Bengals nor the Texans want to start the season 0-2.

The downside to this early season action is exposing Watson before he is ready to shoulder the responsibility. The Bengals haven't gone 0-2 since 2008.

"It's hard to win games when we don't score touchdowns", Lewis said.
