    Maybe I should quit previewing games.  It seems like every time I do the research and write a preview of a Texans game they come out and lose.  On the other hand when I don’t preview a game and just let them play, they win.

    The Texans were underdogs to the 4-1 Bengals and everyone, including our own Andy Benoit, picked the Bengals to win easily over a suspect Houston Defense.  Well it didn’t turn out that way with the Texans putting up 28 points and winning it going away.

    The Texans run defense showed up and limited the league leading rusher to just 44 yards on 16 carries.  The pass defense was present also, limiting Ochochinco to just 103 yards receiving and 0, read it 0, touchdowns.  The Texans defensive unit limited the Bengals to just 296 total yards of offense, 17 points and forced 3 turnovers.   The Texans shutout the Bengals in the second half of the game.
