Houston Texans @ Cincinnati Bengals. 12/11. 12 CT. CBS. **Official GameDay Thread**
 
Quote:

The injuries keep piling up for the Houston Texans, but they have still found a way to string together a franchise-record six straight wins.

The slumping Cincinnati Bengals would settle for one victory at this point.

With All-Pro wide receiver Andre Johnson out, rookie third-string quarterback T.J. Yates will be under center for the Texans on Sunday when they could clinch their first AFC South title with a team-record 10th win.

Now that Matt Schaub (foot) and Matt Leinart (collarbone) are out for the season, the Texans (9-3) have given the keys to their offense to Yates, a fifth-round pick from North Carolina.

Houston, though, is not expecting the rookie to carry the club, especially with Arian Foster and Ben Tate leading the NFL’s third-ranked rushing attack at 152.6 yards per game. The Texans are also second in total defense allowing 271.4 yards per game and points allowed per contest with 15.8.

Yates was sacked three times and missed a few throws in his first NFL start last Sunday, a 17-10 victory over Atlanta, but Texans coach Gary Kubiak will gladly take a 188-yard effort with a touchdown and no interceptions.

The Bengals’ road to the postseason is not as clear cut, as they have dropped three of four following a 5-0 run. Cincinnati’s last three losses have come against Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

Cincinnati didn’t play like one last Sunday, committing 10 penalties in a 35-7 loss at Pittsburgh. Rookie quarterback Andy Dalton, though, knows the Bengals have three home games left and a chance to break out of the pack of five 7-5 teams to secure a wild-card spot.

What I want to see:

Let the rookie throw it early, and get the TEs involved in that process

I say this almost every week, and I'm not backing off it! Ha. But seriously, we have to show the Bengals that we aren't scared to throw it on their defense. It's a very, very good one. However, they are missing their best CB, and could be missing another. So with that said, let's show 'em that we have a QB that could make it tough for their D. Get Daniels and Dreessen involved, and make them respect the pass game.

Rattle the Ginger

Andy Dalton is one awesome rookie QB, but vs high ranked defenses, he's been rather beat up. Last week, he got battered around by the Steelers D. This week, he faces another top defense. Let's get to him early and often. Don't necessarily need sacks to make a statement. Knockdowns and hurries can cause him some problems.

J-Jo, make 'em pay!

Playa, they didn't even want you back! Make them pay by getting a pick or two, and shutting their best receiver down. They love to go up top, looking for the big play. Stay with A.J. Green, hold him to a minimal amount of catches, and make the Bengals regret losing you.

WIN THE DIVISION!

LETS GET WIN #10 and CLINCH THIS DIVISION!!!!!!

We've been the underdog, shown no respect, pushed to the back burner, been an after thought, completely overlooked by some in the media, and insulted by some thinking just because the almighty COLTS are failing this year, we have a "soft," "easy," division!! I LOVE IT!! Let them be doubters!! Our boys have something this year I've NEVER seen in the entire team in our prevous nine years, and that is ATTITUDE! The word can't is not in their vocabulary! They will give 100% for four quarters today, and even if they lose, it will not be because they quit believing.

I'm on pins and needles waiting for this game to start! LOVE my team, and today, the team with the ugliest uniforms in the NFL, is gonna get a taste of what it feels like to get stomped by a TEXAN BULL!!

34-6 TEXANS!!!!!!!!!:texan:

I think while at church this morning I might have to offer up a prayer for Andy Dalton to be able to walk at the end of the game after our defensive line is through with him.

LOL!

He didn't look too please along the side line in his last game against the Steelers.

Go Texans!

RIP, Dad. Love you.

If I were a bettin' man, I'd bet the house against the 3 point Bengals favor. This is one time that Vegas succumbed to some strippers sitting on their laps, while they calculated their odds.

As important as this game is, I can't but to be completely calm and confident in our team's abilities. I think it's finally sunk in that the Houston Texans are a good team.

I'm thinking we put the heat on Dalton and force a few errors and Yates to play a modest, but smart game. I'm thinking we win by 10, 24-14.

How great will it be if the Texans clinch their first ever division title and playoff appearance at 3pm CST (Texans win, Titans loss)? I wouldn't mind to see it happen in person, next week in Reliant. Either way, it's going to be special for the franchise and their fans. Many of us have rooted for them before they ever existed. The biggest win ever was the victory over LA to win the rights to the expansion team. It's time for another big win.

Edit: Looking at the prognosticators above, it's the talking heads and skill players who have a difficult time wrapping their head around the concept of winning with a 3rd string QB. It's the linemen (Golic & Schlereth) that realize that you win up front.

Well, they do get all the press and fan adoration which leads them to believe it's all about them. Poor deluded souls. They're in their own special little worlds.

I fear that the Titans will win just to piss us off. Plus, I don't really trust the Saints outdoors and on the road.

Does anybody find it remotely odd that Bengals fans will cite weather as a possible determining factor of this game (in their favor) when their QB grew up in Katy and played his college ball in Ft. Worth?
