Even the Wounded Bengals are Dangerous on Offense
How do the Texans try to slow down Cincinnati?
DeMeco Ryans has his hands full on Sunday. And his training room full until then.
The Houston Texans could enter Sunday’s showdown with the Cincinnati Bengals down their starting defensive end, two starting linebackers, a starting cornerback, and a starting safety. On top of that, the depth has already been hit with injuries as well.
It will take an incredible effort by the healthy enough-to-play members of this defense.
It really couldn’t come at a worse time either.
Joe Burrow and his Bengals are scorching hot. With a calf injury behind him, Burrow and his team have won four straight. In those games, Burrow has completed 75% of his passes, averaged almost 300 passing yards, and has thrown for 10 total touchdowns.
Now factor in Houston set to potentially miss all those key defenders, and some of their backups. Add in the kicking game is shaky, and the offense might be down Nico Collins, Dameon Pierce, and Andrew Beck. It could be a long day.
