NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals have the night off, as does the rest of the NFL as they get ready to enjoy Thursday Night.

7:25 PM on NFLN
Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati, Ohio
Bengals (-5.5)
Over/Under 38

For the Texans, they turn to rookie and 12th overall pick Deshaun Watson to lead them back to the playoffs. It was an ugly first week for Tom Savage, which led to his benching. The Texans were embarrassed at home by the Jacksonville Jaguars and will look to get back in the win column tonight.

They take on the Bengals, who were pretty awful themselves in their opening loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The Bengals were shut out by the Ravens 20-0 and have drawn the ire of their fanbase once again. They will need a strong rebound performance to get things back on track. With the talent on offense, you would expect that to be easy, but the Bengals have looked lost on the offensive line in the preseason and game one.

It looks like a defensive battle, which likely mean it’ll turn into a shootout.

Buckle up and enjoy.
