Thursday Night Football: Texans at Bengals open thread

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Including their two playoff meetings in 2011 and 2012, this is now the fifth time in seven seasons that Houston vs. Cincinnati has been broadcast in front of a nationally televised audience. Yeah.

Cincinnati didn’t score against the Ravens last week, while the Texans gave up 9 sacks and only scored 7 points at home against the Jaguars. Should be thrill-a-minute stuff to kick off the Thursday Night Football schedule.

Look on the bright side, Deshaun Watson is starting instead of Tom Savage, and if you’re a Washington Huskies fan, John Ross is expected to make his Bengals debut tonight.

Discuss the action and hope that this game is watchable.
