Houston 35, Cincinnati 6: Bengals Now Cero-Ocho

The Texans played almost a perfect game. The Bengals not so much.

The first time the Texans touched the ball, it resulted in a 73 yard punt return by Jacoby Jones. Strangely, both TD returns Jones has done this season have resulted in him ending up on the west side of the north endzone, where he jumps up into the stands where his mom sits. His teammates joke that he needs to get his mom to move each quarter to the other endzone.

Texans quarterback Matt Schaub was nearly perfect, completing 24 of 28 with a 144 QB rating. Gary Kubiak said "That's hard to do against air."

Maybe Chad Ocho Cinco should change his name back to Johnson. He claims that his friend Andre Johnson is having such a huge season because "he's a Johnson." Andre Johnson leads the league in receptions, yards, and yards per game average. In each of his four games in October, he has been over the 130 yard mark, with 41 receptions, 593 yards and 2 TDs for the month.

A Texans defense that had previously not been able to hold a team under 21 points held the Bengals to six. If the Bengals are incapable on throwing on a Texans defense that is one of the worst in the league, they may not be able to move the ball on any team.

Unfortunately for the Bengals, it doesn't look like their schedule gets any easier any time soon.
