NFL betting tips: Free betting tips and odds for Houston Texans at Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday

JJ Watt and the defense can help Houston hit form in Cincinnati

After becoming the first National Football League team in 78 years to open the season with two home games and fail to score a touchdown in either, the Cincinnati Bengals made a change on Friday - but it wasn't at quarterback.

That's almost four score, which is one more score than the Bengals have posted after managing three field goals in Thursday night's 13-9 loss to Houston on the heels of a 20-0 blanking in the opener .

Deshaun Watson marked his first start for the Houston Texans with a 13-9 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in NFL.

It's quite rare when memes focus on the awfulness of an entire event and not just one team, but despite Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals looking bad against the Houston Texans, the whole Thursday Night Football experience deserved to be criticized.

O'Brien has no doubt that Watson, who was the 12th overall pick in this year's draft out of Clemson, will grow as he gets more playing time and becomes more comfortable with the offense. But given just how bad both the Texans and Bengals were in their matchups, that doesn't seem particularly likely. "I thought that Tom hung in there and played very tough". For Houston to win, odds are Watson will need to make some plays.

An extremely disappointing and embarrassing start to the season for both these teams with the Texans smacked by AFC South rival Jaguars and the Bengals kept scoreless at home against their AFC North rival, Ravens. If Deshaun Watson had a better offensive line to protect him and actually give him time in the pocket, he could do some great things.

Ean said he had just suggested the pair move back from the road towards the auto park for a safer viewing spot. On social media, there are unconfirmed reports from witnesses suggesting that children were among those hit.

But even with the yardage issues, the Bengals were just one touchdown away from pulling out a victory.

Last week we were so overjoyed for Thursday Night Football, as we were finally blessed with the return of the regular season.

The Bengals' offensive line struggles are a huge concern coming into a game against the Texans' front seven, but Houston's offensive line is a mess as well.

Cincinnati took the kickoff to start the third quarter and drove down to the 12 of Houston. "Thank you for throwing it to the guy closest to me - body slam". He finished the game without a touchdown pass and went 16 of 31 for 170 yards.

Savage was 7 of 13 for 62 yards in the first half. On Thursday, he had six tackles, knocked down one pass and hit Dalton once. As a cherry on top, Brian Cushing received a ten-game suspension on Wednesday.

The downside to this early season action is exposing Watson before he is ready to shoulder the responsibility. Dalton followed it with a big game in a 27-10 win at New Orleans, throwing for three touchdowns and a rating of 143.9 that is the second best of his career.
