The Cincinnati Bengals will go only as far as QB Andy Dalton will take them. The three-time Pro Bowler had an awful opening week; he’ll need to recover quickly if the Bengals are going to handle the visiting Houston Texans this Thursday.

Kick-off is at 8:25 PM ET on the NFL Network.

Dalton had one of the worst Week 1 games in NFL history this past Sunday, committing five turnovers (four picks and a fumble) as the Bengals were shut out 20-0 by the Baltimore Ravens, coughing up the cash as 3-point home favorites.

However, Cincinnati is a 6.5-point chalk against the Texans at press time after opening at –4. The total for Thursday’s game has dropped from 38.5 to 38.

Houston is coming off a nightmare game of its own, losing 29-7 to the Jacksonville Jaguars as 6-point home favorites. QB Tom Savage didn’t even make it past halftime before getting replaced by rookie Deshaun Watson. Unfortunately, Watson didn’t do much better, and he suffered a minor ankle injury after eating four sacks behind Houston’s porous offensive line.

It’s believed that Watson will get the start against Cincinnati after putting in a limited practice on Monday.
