Bengals players after loss: We lost to worst team in league

As if falling to a quarterback making his first career start weren't dejecting enough, Cincinnati's offensive struggles have landed it in the National Football League history books. He's been sacked eight times in two games as the Bengals lost to the Baltimore Ravens 20-0 on Sunday and to the Houston Texans 13-9 on Thursday.

WATSON'S PLAUDITS: Watson is the first rookie quarterback to win his first start on the road in a prime-time game since the Eagles' Joe Webb in 2010, according to Elias. He ran five times for a team-high 67 yards and completed 15 of 24 passes for 125 yards with no interceptions and three sacks.

Watson directed an offence missing three tight ends because of concussions, along with receiver Will Fuller V and guard Jeff Allen. Watt, a defensive leader for the Texans, toughed it out. I love Watson and think he should have been starting from the beginning for Houston, but like Jared Goff with Jeff Fisher and his shitty crew, there's a fear he'll just be wasted this season with O'Brien.

Jones did leave the game late in the fourth quarter with an elbow injury but returned to finish the game. Houston's offense managed just 66 yards in the first half. "My receivers and everyone that was downfield did a good job of blocking for me". Johnson was impressive, finishing with 52 total tackles, one interception and nine pass defenses. Linebacker Brian Cushing is serving a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

It's still early in the season, but injuries are already to beginning to plague the Texans. Dalton followed it with a big game in a 27-10 win at New Orleans, throwing for three touchdowns and a rating of 143.9 that is the second best of his career.
