Cincinnati Bengals change coordinator, not quarterback, to address offensive struggles

Will lowest scoring NFL Week 1 in years lead to more Unders in Week 2

On Thursday night, the Cincinnati Bengals quarterback and TCU Rose Bowl icon tried to get it right as the offensively challenged NFL began Week 2 of the 2017 season with a Bengals-Houston Texans pairing fraught with football-watching peril. "There's maybe three or four different plays that we run and vice versa that the other guy doesn't run, but it (the offense) doesn't really change too much".

Ross' first touch came on a running play.

This line opened at Bengals minus-3 and has doubled since, and that's because the Texans figure to be undermanned and overmatched.

The Bengals' offense was stagnant once again Thursday night, falling to the Texans 13-9.

Four series later, the Texans would get the ball at their own ten yard-line, and drive down the field. I've only seen so much and have so much more to see and experience to be able to get to the top, where I want to be. "He did a lot of different things, he blitzed off the edge, got a sack, caused a fumble, had several tackles". Tom Savage was awful and Deshaun Watson wasn't a whole lot better, but his mobility gives the Texans a fighting chance from the quarterback position. Geno Atkins was a monster for the Bengals with two sacks.




"Not scoring a touchdown in two games is not good".

With the Concussion Protocol it is possible that Houston will face Cincinnati with just a single tight end on their roster in Evan Baylis.

The Houston Texans (0-1) are heading to Paul Brown Stadium to take on the Cincinnati Bengals (0-1). "I have to put this one behind us", acknowledged Dalton. He said the player, who turned 22 on Thursday, was already on his iPad on the flight back home after the game, dissecting his play.

Cincinnati Bengals rookie wide receiver John Ross is brushing off the fact that he fumbled on the very first touch of his National Football League career on Thursday evening against the Houston Texans. They'll find out on Sunday, September 24th as they visit the Green Bay Packers with game time slated for 4:25 p.m.

A couple of his throws were tipped and unfortunately dropped into the hands of some very grateful, lurking Ravens defenders so Dalton was quick to blame himself afterwards. 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.
