Week two of the NFL season kicks off on Thursday night.
The Houston Texans make the trip to Paul Brown Stadium to take on the Cincinnati Bengals.
Both of these teams were embarrassed in week one, and they will look for their first win in this one. Both of these teams have questions at quarterback and hope they will get better play in tihs one.
The Houston Texans and their fans have high hope for their season, and although there is still a lot of season left if week one is any indication it could be a very long season.
Tom Savage got the start against the Jacksonville Jaguars and it didn’t go well at all. He was 7-13 and threw for only 62 yards and zero touchdowns.
He also had a lost fumble, and almost lost another one. With the struggles Deshaun Watson was brought in, and although he did have some struggles, the offense at least started to move the ball.
He threw for 102 yards, one touchdown and one interception. It still wasn’t enough though and the Texans lost 29-7 which was a huge hit to their chances.
Not only did they lose to a team that isn’t supposed to be very good, they also lost to a team that is a division rival.
They haven’t named a starter for this week two game, but my guess is that Watson will be the guy who leads the Texans in this game.
They need to get out to a fast start in this game no matter who is the quarterback. They can’t get in a hole again or they will have issues.
This isn’t a team built to play from behind. They need to get out to an early lead and then let the defense take over and help him win the game.
On the other side of this match up is the Cincinnati Bengals who also had a terrible start to the year. They played the Baltimore Ravens in week one, and the offense couldn’t get anything going and that led to a 20-0 defeat.
So what part of the offense really struggled? Andy Dalton was terrible in game one and he needs to be a lot better if the Bengals want to make the playoffs this year.
He threw for 170 yards and four interceptions and didn’t seem to have any control over the offense. There are rumblings that Dalton might not be the quarterback of the future, and he needs to have a couple of good weeks or he could be benched.
To win this game it all comes down to Andy Dalton. He needs to be better and try to figure out a Texans defense that is usually good, and will probably be really fired up for this game.
