At halftime-Houston 9, Cincinnati 7.

Houston has plenty of yards (244-106 rushing, 138 passing) Yet they only have 3 field goals to show for it.

Cinci on the other hand has low stats and I mean LOW! 60 yards rushing and 3, that's right, 3 yards passing.

Needless to say, that defense is going to cave if the Bengals don't get out of their funk. The Texans are playing as good a defense as I've seen out of them in a while though.

With the Texans, they should be up by 2 touchdowns. Yet because of the pick 6 they are only up by 2.

Ya something has to give. Will it be the Houston offense or will Cincinnati come out excited because of how bad they have played yet only being down by a few points?

Bengal receiver AJ Green hasn't even been thrown to. Some odd observations, and time of possession is Houston 24 minutes, Cinci 6 minutes, but they're hanging in there, only down by 2. Something has to give here one way or another for both clubs. Started the 3rd: Big call on the fair catch interference.

I said early on I thought the Bengals had a chance, based on some of Houston's games, the fair catch penalty, dumb, really dumb. Yep, they score a TD, 16-7 now.

I think NE wins that game, Houston just doesn't have it together and cannot stop a high powered offense. I'd be very surprised if Texans pull it off.

Yeah, I tend to agree with you. I wouldn't be surprised, I'd be shocked. I think anyone will have a hard time trying to figure out how to make a case for the Texans to be close come the 4th quarter...


No Reliant stadium crowd to back them up.

New England/Brady took them to the woodshed a few weeks back, picked them apart, and now they have Gronk back which they didn't before....

Shaub is definitely the weak link for Houston along w/their secondary....

I expect the line to be somewhere around 10 1/2 - 11 by kickoff....

I know it is tough to change things during the season, but Packers/Patriots both exposed their secondary for 42 points and have they fixed it?

Last year the Patriots and Packers had defense issues, run game issues, both have been addressed somewhat, granted they won't be running teams but both made changes. For the Packers, with Mike being a throw the ball way down the field because of AR, not easy for him to do, he is stubborn, slow to change.

Patriots are impressive because they can still get it done with major players out, they had injury issues this year, just like the Packers. I keep hearing talk about Cushing being out, you can't depend on one player that much. If it is a QB, I get it but other players, next man up.

Texans offense continues to sputter but the defense looked good. Need the O to step it up if they have any chance against the Pats.

Colts need to beef up their O line in the offseason, theres no way they can win in the playoffs if they can't protect Luck any better than this.
