Watson Leads Texans over Bengals

Now, the Houston Texans' coach hopes Watson can do the same on Thursday against the Cincinnati Bengals, knowing that his team's playoff aspirations and its future at quarterback could rely on how Watson develops in his first National Football League season.

In Week 2, the Houston Texans were able to bounce back from an embarrassing loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars with a win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football.

The Cincinnati Bengals host the Houston Texans on Thursday night in Paul Brown Stadium (8:25 p.m. ET, NFL Network), and there will be no shortage of drama for this week's game.

The Bengals defense held Houston to just 266 total yards, with the Texans only entering the red zone once the entire game.

On first down with 1:18 left in the first half, Watson dropped back only to get his official "welcome to the NFL" moment, courtesy of Bengals All-Pro DT Geno Atkins. He avoided the rush and ran 49 yards for a 10-3 lead late in the first half, dashing past befuddled defenders.

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. Additionally, each of the three tight ends was out against Cincinnati with an injury. Wins are important in the short term for a team with playoff expectations, but the Texans need to see Watson's improvement week-to-week. T.J. Johnson replaced Hopkins in Sunday's game and could make his second career start on Thursday. The Bengals ran the ball 24 times for 82 yards, for an average of 3.4 yards per carry.

Trailing 13-9 on their own 20-yard line with just seconds left, the Bengals made a last-ditch attempt to score. "That was a game-sealing touchdown right there". Houston's defense will dominate it. J.J. Watt will be in the game more. "I thought for ... the first time he's had that much action, he did a good job".

After a Cincinnati Bengals penalty and a fumble by rookie wide receiver John Ross, the Texans had field position on Cincinnati's 20-yard line. The Texans made a decision to start the rookie quarterback with an injured ankle during a short week. Linebacker Brian Cushing is serving a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

After 15 scoreless possessions to begin the season, the Bengals finally got on the scoreboard with a 39-yard field goal by Randy Bullock, set up by A.J. Green's 50-yard catch. They will now head on the road to take on the New England Patriots this Sunday.
