Default Early Line: Houston -10 over Cincinnati

The Texans are 10 point favorites for the second week in a row.

http://covers.usatoday.com/data/odds.aspx

This is the same spread the Texan's were favored by over the Lions last week, and they did not cover. Will they cover this week?

Personally, I believe they will.

What do you think?

Default Re: Early Line: Houston -10 over Cincinnati

We're going into week 8 and I've yet to see our defense stop anybody on a consistant basis. No, we won't cover the spread.

IMO, we'll be lucky yo get a win. Housh, CJ, Henry, etc. vs. Texans secondary = Complete domination no matter the QB throwing to them.

I'll take Cincy +10 for a 1000, Alex

Yo homeboy... The Bungles are dead last in total offense. With that said, playing our defense they will look like a top 15 offense. Now reverse the rolls, our offense against their 19th ranked defense. We crush them for 475 yards total offense, but only win 31-20 because of -2 turnover ratio...

Default Re: Early Line: Houston -10 over Cincinnati

I'm pretty confident we'll win, but I wouldn't bet it will be by 10 or more. The only games we've had chances in this season have been scarily close. Even last week. So theres reason for me to believe we'll suddenly blow someone out.

McNair knows that the economy is bad, so I'm guessing he's asked the team to keep it real close until the last play. That way, everyone stays longer and buys more stuff. Brilliant man (lame joke attempt)

If we don't cover against the Bengals, there is a good chance we never will.

However, I think the Texans rock this week. They looked great for the first two quarters against the Lions. That game was not actually as close as the final score suggested.

Default Re: Early Line: Houston -10 over Cincinnati

I figure this is the game where we finally get it together and start fixing the turnover ratio. The Offense should look good (Andre Davis' injury notwithstanding).

Unfortunately, I still think the D gets burned for 2-3 HUGE plays and we 'barely' hold on for the win. (+/- 6 pt margin of victory)

We'll make Texan's history with our first 3 game winning streak.

However if we win by more than a touchdown I'll be surprised.

Right! It wouldn't be the first time Fitz torched our so-called defense. If Carson plays.....we lose.

Default Re: Early Line: Houston -10 over Cincinnati

I looked at all the NFL lines on the USA Today site and noticed that Houston -10 is the biggest spread for any game scheduled this week.

They either have a lot of confidence in the Texans or no confidence at all in the Bengals. Maybe it is some of both.

Its more the Bungals than the Texans. The Bungals are on the verge of quitting its a shock they haven't fired Marvin Lewis, but that would be a dream come true for him.

That's ridiculous. 10 points??? With our secondary and their receivers? No way. We'll win - but no way.

10 points is nuts. If we win it's by 3 pts. or less, this will be a very close game and could even be a Bengals win if we're not careful.

No Palmer on Sunday - it's definitely Fitzpatrick...

From the Article:
Quote:
Lewis also ruled out quarterback Carson Palmer for the game Sunday in Houston. Palmer will rest his sore passing elbow for a second straight week. It's unclear whether he will play again this season. For now, Palmer is trying to see if the elbow heals with rest. If not, he has an option of having surgery.

No way, IMO, do we cover 10 points. I expect a close game that could go either way.

I tend to agree, but does this say the Bungles are not as bad as their record is, or that Houston is just not very good yet? Or both? LOL

I suppose that's good news for us.

I'd like for once, just once, to be able to come out and punch a team in the face and Manning them until we're up at least a 40 burger. We only did it for a quarter and a half against the Lions.

The Bungles gave the Steelers all they could handle for about three quarters last week .... playing a winless team is like playing russian roulette , the gun has nothing to lose. I think this is a close game , the Bungles arent as bad as their record.

I'd take the points, but it really depends on which team shows up and for how long. If the team from half one last week shows up, we could win 38-10. If the team from half 2 shows up, we could lose 27-21.

Do NOT touch this game unless you're a masochist, or simply want to lose money. They had the Lions by 21 and couldn't cover. NO! NO! NO!
