After the "performances" these two put up in Week 1, I take my hat off to anyone staying up until gone 4.00 on Friday morning to watch this...

Texans to win 2-0 in OT courtesy of JJ Watt's sack safety.

How does Bill O'Brien still have a head coaching gig? In regards to the game I can only see a Bengals win seen as Houston have 5 turnstiles on the offensive line.

All 3 of Houston's TE's are in the concussion protocol, and Duane Brown is still holding out. Not looking great for the Texans...

Yeah, Bengals win.

Rookie QB and 5 in concussion protocol, Dalton will have to do something really special for us to win

Both these teams stunk the house out in week one, both have shocking O Lines, if Watt doesnt get a sack or 2 here theres something not rightBengals have to run a lot especially after Daltons "performance" and the Bengals gave up sheds against the run...how about 0-0?

It's no wonder these 2 teams struggled week one when you like at the talent they field on their O lines.

The Bengals may have invested high draft picks in 2 athletic OT's (Ogbuehi and Fischer), and ok they are still quite young, but neither one has come close to playing at the level of the guy they released in the off season (Whitworth). Russell Bodine at center has had his struggles too, short armed guy who will always struggle to control players when it comes to reach. Clint Boling is probably the pick of the bunch but he's above average at best.

The Texans have a journeyman RT (Giacomini) on his 4th team, Kendall Lamm at LT filling in for Duane Brown, Su'a-Filo (who I liked coming out of college), a high draft pick at LG who has failed miserably, Jeff Allen, he's maybe another 'above average at best' type, and young Nick Martin at center (he's no Zack!).

These 2 front 7's should have quite a productive time on Thursday night!

(although i cant shake the feeling it'll be higher scoring than we think)

I never stay up for these games anyway as it is too late for us in UK with Job on a Friday morning. I will catch it on Friday afternoon probably, both Oline are horrendous, Both D are decent.

Houston are a team we seem to never be able to beat. Im going for a close loss for the Bengals 16 - 12. Ugly game.

Bill O'Brien doesn't pick the players,its not his fault that the Owner/GM keep giving him garbage to coach at QB.also he probably is still the best headcoach in the AFC South(I know,some stiff competition).
