The Bengals could have gone into halftime tied at 10, but a great play by J.J. Watt of snagging the ball out of the air gave the Texans momentum and the lead at halftime.
Offensively, Jay Gruden was doing a nice job of mixing things up on first down with a balance of run and pass (eight pass and six run) which we will see if that continues. Andy Dalton has completed the ball to eight different receivers. After having just four catches for 47 yards the past two games, Green has four for 42 yards in the first half but his biggest play might have been during the first quarter when Grover Quin interfered with him on a deep route, which resulted in a 52-yard pass interference penalty. Dalton is 13 of 18 for 120 yards.
Cedric Benson has a touchdown but only nine yards on five carries.
Defensively, they have not done a good job of containing Arian Foster, who has 70 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown.
Special teams has been sketchy as Mike Nugent missed a 50-yard field goal.
The two worst...
