Bengals Weekly Forecast: First glance at the Texans

Bengals Weekly Forecast: First glance at the Texans

O'Brien said he was evaluating "a lot of things" between Watson and Tom Savage, including the rookie quarterback's ankle injury.

Bill O'Brien has declined to name a starter for Thursday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but they will reportedly start Watson as long as he's healthy.

Trailing 19-0 at the start of the second half, the Texans pulled Savage after he completed just 7-of-13 passes in the first half for 63 yards.

The move paid a quick dividend, as the first-round pick led the Texans on a 14-play, 75-yard drive, ending with a 4-yard TD pass to DeAndre Hopkins.

The writing was on the wall when Tom Savage was benched for Deshaun Watson midway through the Jaguars' absolute rout of the Texans in Week 1. The Texans didn't record a sack or a turnover while surrendering 100 yards to rookie running back Leonard Fournette in his National Football League debut.

While Watson needs time to develop, he surely gave Houston's offense a spark once replacing Savage.

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said that Cincinnati is preparing for Watson to start, according to Wilson.

"We just weren't in sync", Savage said "That's just kind of what it was". Giovani Bernard only carried the ball seven times but finished with 40 yards, including one that went for 23 yards.

Or they could stick with Savage, a traditional pocket passer who didn't commit any glaring errors and was helpless behind a suspect offensive line that allowed him to be sacked six times.

Kickoff between the Texans and Bengals is set for 8:25 pm ET on Thursday on NFL Network.

Jason Myers kicked a pair of field goals in the first half to open the scoring for Jacksonville in the first half and Fournette scored with a one-yard plunge up the middle late in the second quarter. He was sacked four times and threw an interception.

Playing for the first time in the regular season after missing 13 games previous year with back surgery, the star defensive end left the game early in the second quarter and finished with just one tackle.

If the Texans can run consistently, it will set up the play-action, and that's when Hopkins needs to step up and ignite the offense with some electrifying receptions. Watson looked like the better of the two, especially when he was forced to utilize his mobility.
