    This is probably our toughest match-up of the year so far. We better learn to play consistent for a whole game or we are going to get embarrased.

    Bengals are favored by 5.5 points.

    Will this game start the first streak of the season for the Texans? A losing streak?

    This is a pretty big game for us this year. 3-3 or 2-4, and we still have to play the Colts twice.

    If we don't win the next two games the season is likely over with given the fact we still have two games against the colts..

    Bengals - tough game
    49ers - could be another tough game
    Colts - tough game
    Bills - we should win..

    We could very well be 3-6 at the end of this year, the only wins I feel comfortable about from here on out are the bills, rams, and seahawks..

    Did we switch to a 9 game season? Its tough to project anything in the NFL, injuries and momentum can drastically change the makeup of any given team any given week.

    Of all the teams in the league, the Bengals should understand the Texans fans plight more so than anyone.

    They have immature adults who suddenly got their headman back. That headman has whipped them into a consistent playing shape on the field by being the general that he is.

    The Texans are a young inconsistent team, who still need to grow that veteran mentality that comes with playing football games.

    The Bengals Special Teams sucks as I'm sure you all already know....


    I'm sure that's going to hurt them a lot more than it did against the Browns cuz we have a pretty good ST and unlike them we have an offense that can put up points....especially with good field position....

    Remember this?

    http://www.nfl.com/videos/cleveland-browns/09000d5d81324347/WK-4-Joshua-Cribbs-highlights

    -Jacoby isn't Cribbs, but he is one of the best returners in the league, he's a game-changer and should have some success against their ST

    http://www.nfl.com/videos/cleveland-browns/09000d5d81324146/WK-4-Derek-Anderson-highlights

    -I'm pretty sure Schaub is better than DA...

    I already feel great about Schaub with his weapons and now I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what we can do against that "shut down" (23rd) pass defense....:dancer:

    No disrespect to Massaquoi who was a beast in college, but AJ is already a beast in the NFL...

    Every QB we have faced so far is better than DA, and one of them has two SB rings. So saying Schaub (who I actually like) is better than DA is not saying much.

    And yet still it took the final seconds to beat them...This QB has more weapons in the passing game for that defense....

    Everyone is mentioning our Rush D ranking...The Browns have the worst rush D and had enough opportunites to win that game and lost in OT...So many of these Bengals fans think this is a cakewalk...Just wait and see....:fans:

    We always play best as an underdog. The Bengals always choke as a favorite. Chalk up a W.

    We were favored vs. the Browns, and we flushed them down.

    The Texans are 1-3 against Cincinnati.

    Turns out, you don't. And you won't. :whip:

    What you don't understand is that we are consistently inconsistent. That said, this is a "win" week for us.
