Texans will debut color rush uniforms vs. Bengals

Houston Texans?on Thursday night, a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson. Lamar Miller had 61 yards on 18 carries.

Cincinnati would get their first down at the end of the first quarter when quarterback Andy Dalton hit AJ Green for 50-yards down to Houston's 14-yard line.

Heisman trophy victor Watson was 15-for-24 passing for 125 yards against the Bengals, but more importantly, he was four for four for 46 yards and had two rushes for 53 yards including a 49-yard touchdown run on the Texans' lone touchdown drive.




Watson was steady throughout Thursday's game, going 15 of 24 for 125 yards. On his first drive to start the second half, Watson threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins. While he was relatively unproductive during his early years at Washington, Ross exploded during his junior campaign, catching 81 passes for 1,150 yards and 17 touchdowns. Thursday will be a physical game, but for the loser, an 0-2 hole to start the season may prove insurmountable. "He's going to make some mistakes, and it's on us to keep working with him and minimize his mistakes and get rid of them, not repeat them, and keep moving forward with him". Andy Dalton threw four interceptions and lost a fumble in his season debut, posting a negative fantasy score in a 20-0 loss to the Ravens. Joe Mixon added nine yards in eight carries. Still, he led the Texans to a win, which is something you can't say about Tom Savage. As ESPN noted, Watson arrived at the game in a black tuxedo before helping lead his team to victory on the football field.

Houston is coming off a 2016 in which they went 9-7 and finished first in the AFC South.

The win moves the Houston Texans to 1-1 on their season, with a 1-0 away record and 0-1 home record. Houston tries to make it a 2-1 start to their season next week as they visit Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Perhaps Houston could survive that in the traditionally weak AFC South, and if nothing else the Texans' season will remain meaningful as Watson begins his development as an National Football League starter. Not only did they both suffer humiliating defeats in the NFL's opening weekend slate of games, but both teams' offenses were bad. To make matters even more hard, the schedules don't get any easier in Week 3, with Houston heading to New England and Cincinnati traveling to Green Bay following Thursday night's clash.
