Both the #Houston Texans and #Cincinnati Bengals had 0-1 starts to their season. They'll be trying to even things up when they meet in the latest installment of Thursday night football. Here's the latest Texans vs. Bengals game preview with matchup odds, start time, as well as where to watch on TV or live streaming online.

Game preview

In Week 1, the Houston Texans fell to the Jacksonville Jaguars by a final of 29-7. The Jaguars held Houston to just 93 yards on the ground and bothered starting quarterback Tom Savage. He was ultimately benched in favor of rookie Deshaun Watson who went 12-for-23 for 102 yards and a touchdown in his debut.

However, the two quarterbacks have been sacked a total of ten times for a loss of 54 yards. Lamar Miller led the team with 65 rushing yards, while DeAndre Hopkins had seven catches for 55 yards and a touchdown in the loss.

The Cincinnati Bengals didn't do any better in their first game of the season. The team failed to score a single point on their home field, and the Ravens defeated them 20-0. Andy Dalton had a rough first game for the 2017 campaign as he threw four picks, fumbled once, and was sacked five times. Dalton ended up with a 16-for-31 day with 170 yards and no scores. Cincinnati was also held to 77 yards on the ground as the Baltimore defense harassed them most of the game.

Both teams need that bounce back win to get to 1-1 for their latest season, and with their opening week quarterback issues, it seems something has to give in tonight's game.
