No Longer Undefeated: Texans Take Down Bengals


And then there were two. After Monday night’s game between the Houston Texans and Cincinnati Bengals, there are only two undefeated teams left in the NFL this season – the New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers.

Cincinnati was handed their first loss of the season by a Texans team that entered the game with a 3-5 record. Houston’s defensive leader J.J. Watt commented after the game that his defense made the Red Rifle (referring to Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and his bright red hair) look like a Red Ryder BB Gun.

Dalton was not pleased with the comments, saying that he didn’t expect a player of Watt’s caliber to make such statements. The bottom line is that the Bengals offense played ugly football and we got a glimpse of the old Dalton again, the one who has very regularly played terribly in the spotlight of nationally televised games in the past.
