Default WC Game 1 Texans VS Bengals.....Lets Predict ;)

OK OK we have looked crappy, coaching has sucked, blah blah blah blah blah

I dont really give a damn this is the play-offs this is where it all begins. And we all want to see H-Town bring home the Lombardi, and folks this is where it starts. To be the best you have to beat the best and that 100% holds true this season considering if we win we go to NE and if we win there we will most likely have to travel to the mile high city.

But that is talk for another day.

This Saturday our Texans take the field against the bengals for the 2nd straight year.

Texans 30
Bengals 24


AJ goes for 130 and a TD, Foster gets a 100 with 2 TDs but our Red Zone problems continue as we settle for 3 FGs.

Ummmm i am sure most of you will be negative and i cant say i blame you, but remember how good we were the first 9 games of the season ??? We all know we can play with the best we just havent been lately, so dont lose hope Fellow Texans, if you need i will pump some rays of Texas sunshine into your message board life the best i can

500 yards?!?! Man I wish I had your optimism, I really do. I think we might get half that if we are lucky.

Shoot! We come out firing and blow them out going for almost 500 yards and I guarantee my spirits will be a LOT more than a "little" higher!!

Let's go Texans!

52-17 Good Guys!!

I'm feeling better now and thinking more clearly. I'm changing my original prediction of 31-6 Bengals to... 45-3 Bengals now. :-)

Default Re: WC Game 1 Texans VS Bengals.....Lets Predict ;)

My gut based on recent games says something like;

Bengals 28 - Texans 9

My maxed out homerism/trying to be a sunshine pumper still based on recent games would be;

Bengals 6 - Texans 17.....this offense has just blown massive donkey balls so this win would reflect that and a big day on D.

Want to see my prediction if we face NE lol?

Default Re: WC Game 1 Texans VS Bengals.....Lets Predict ;)

I have not made a prediction for this game and probably won't b/c I just can't get all that excited for it. I can't say I'll really be affected either way. Well I guess I won't be pissed if the texans win, so there's that. With all that said, here are some interesting points to look at heading into this game:

1) While the texans have had their struggles, the bengals have only 1 offensive TD in their last 2 games.
2) During their streak they beat 2 winning teams, the giants (who were an enigma all year and missed the playoffs) and Ravens (who rested their starters for most of the game). Their one loss came at home to the 8-8 cowboys.
3. Andy dalton has been sacked 46 times, 3rd most in the league by QB, compared to Matt Schaub only 27, 5th least of full season starters.

Personally, I feel the teams are a near even matchup and it sets up to be a close game. The texans avg ~30 yds more per game (mostly rushing) and defensively they are even. the texans are better vs. the run giving up 10 yds less per game than the bengals, so this might be a key advantage in the texans favor. As an aside, everyone is ready to crown the bengals, so I think the mental edge favors the texans here as the bengals may just get a bit ahead of themselves, in spite of the texans recent turtle act. But that's why they play the game.

No offense, but I find that very sad. This is why we follow this team. Sure, the Super Bowl is the ultimate goal, but it starts here. 10 years of wanting this team to get here & we're worried about getting over the hump.

I think last year was the first year in Atlanta Falcons history for back to back winning seasons. This is the first time in a long while since the Bengals have had back to back play-off appearances. Two years in a row the Cowboys lost a chance to be in the play-offs on the last day of the regular season. The Giants missed the play-offs 2 of the last three years.

Yeah, the Texans blew an excellent opportunity, but it ain't over yet.

Bengals - 29

Texans - 22

Since our O-line is less than perfect against an awesome D-line and our QB plays mostly out of the fetal position under pressure, I just don't see us winning. It doesn't help that our ILBs are softer than a baby's bum.

I really hope I'm wrong though.

Pretty evenly matched, so based on home field advantage we should have this right?

Can we figure out a way to blow it ... remains to be seen.

Texans - 24

Imo, the Bengals front 7 are currently better than ours. We've got Watt and some of Antonio, but we're lacking a LB corps.

Go back and look at the numbers in the Colts game:

Statistically the Texans owned that game out gaining the Colts 352 to 265. The difference were the two big plays given up on special teams and the 3rd and 23. I know they are part of the game and you can't remove them, but if you do take them away, Schaub may not be forcing that second pick late, and I don't think the defense gives up on the last drive in which the Colts gained 63 yards. So up to that point the Texans moved the ball at will but bogged down in the redzone while out gaining the Colts 352 to 202. Defensively they actually held up pretty well with the exception of the long TD pass. The Colts 2nd TD came on a short field after Schaubs 1st horrible pick. Let's not forget the ridiculous "incomplete pass" ruled on Luck's fumble. They made the Colts punt 5 times, the Texans only punted twice. I chalk this game up to more of anamoly. Face it, the Colts were not losing that game on the strength of Chuckstrong.
