AN early one up for the Thursday night football. On Sunday the Cincinnati Bengals and Houston Texans turned the ball over 9 teams between each other and were ultimately destroyed by their opposition.

While Tom Savage was named the starter for the Texans all through the off-season, it wasn’t long before they scrapped that plan and gave the National Championship winning rookie the start he probably deserved, but not at HT.

Watson looked much better than Savage, but he’s still a raw talent in the big league and it will take some time before he settles.

Andy Dalton threw four interceptions in their shutout loss against Baltimore on Sunday, but the odds on him having a bad game like that again with the talent the Bengals offense poses is slim to none.

The Texans held Blake Bortles in check, but he did lose his top targets early. Leaonard Fournette ran all over them though, and they’ll hope JJ Watt has recovered from his injury that saw him limited Sunday.

Houston are struggling badly on the offensive line and have all three of their tight ends out for tomorrow. Running the ball, and holding off the Bengals strong defensive front will be a challenge.

Bengals v Texans (Fri 1.25am)

  • Cincinnati Bengals -5.5
  • (89-100, Marathonbet) – 5 points

    Got to worry about cinicinatti this season jordan. They lost Kevin seater and Andrew whitworth this off season that was why dalton struggled so much think he going struggle again tonight. Losing a couple of pro bowl offensive linemen is going to hurt them. Houston can’t be trusted either it’s never good when you switch qb half way through game 1. Am going to take the unders

    Under 38pts 10/11

    As much as I agree Lee, somebody has to win (please no OT draw) and after last weeks performances, the Bengals edge it despite their 0 on the board. All three tight ends for Houston are out and their LT is still holding out for a contract. Adams Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick back in the Bengals secondary. Just a few things steering me Cinci’s way.

    William Hill have John Ross to score a TD @ 7/1. Not a bad price for the fastest guy in the NFL. Now probable after missing week 1.

    NFL Week 2

    Baltimore Ravens -2.5
    Oakland Raiders -5.5

    7/10 @ 365 – 10 points

    Two road teams on the rebuild against two home teams with hopes of playoff aspirations. Cleveland will try and keep it close as its a divisional game, but the Jets will find fit tough traveling west on the later slate.
    Kizer showed flashes of what he could be but is the least experienced starter in the NFL. He could find it tough against the Ravens who forced five turnovers in their shutout in Cinci last Sunday.

    The Jets amassed 214 total yards in Buffalo, while allowing 190 on the ground. Two words, BEAST-MODE. Marshawn Lynch played his first NFL game in over 600 days last week and looked like the same old bruiser he always was. Expect a big day for Lynch and I’ll likely be on his rush yards if I can find a suitable line.
