Houston Texans defeat Cincinnati Bengals 13-9
Hopkins, who signed an $81 million contract that included $39 million in guaranteed money, is under a lot of pressure to produce, no matter what the Bengals try to do against him.
Nobody around seemed to have the answer.
The Houston Texans head north for a meeting with the Cincinnati Bengals - in an AFC battle between squads who got off to a horrific start last week. The game is on during prime time, the equivalent of kryptonite for Dalton.
Watson came on in relief for Tom Savage in the second half of Houston's 29-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, passing for 102 yards and one touchdown and an interception while rushing for 16 more yards. The Bengals made Terrell Suggs look like he was 22 years old again.
While it will start Thursday with Watson taking snaps under center, how the remainder of the season plays out will dictate whether these two have jobs heading into January. In turning after matching Week 1 showings Sunday to perform Thursday of Week 2, Bengals and the Texans had little time to live on their 2017 debuts.

NASA prepares for Cassini's grand finale on Saturn
Stunning pictures captured Saturn's weather, a once-in-30-years storm that engulfed the globe, and the changing of its seasons. Cassini gazed toward the northern hemisphere of Saturn to spy subtle, multi-hued bands in the clouds there.
The Bengals offensive line was abysmal in their opening loss to Baltimore, and Dalton at quarterback proved he will make mistakes when pressured. If he doesn't, the Bengals offense will need to pray that A.J. Green becomes an unstoppable force - something he has the ability to do. I have no idea what the team's solution will be to compensate for having ZERO tight ends on the active roster. Watt, Whitney Mercilus and Jadeveon Clowney, combined with a porous Bengals offensive line, might give him nightmares.
Houston's offense is struggling because of injuries, ineptitude and issues at quarterback and in the offensive line - not to mention tight end being decimated by concussions. Dalton and left tackle Cedric Ogbuehi, who was the target of a barrage of ire on social media, kept their helmets on as they ran through the tunnel at their home stadium.
The last two seasons had thrilling finishes despite low-scoring defensive battles. One to Green required the receiver to extend to grab it with his fingertips. Sunday was not the first time he had been booed and probably won't be the last. Johnathan Joseph hurt his right shoulder while making a tackle in the first half and didn't return.
There's clearly no savior coming to lift the Bengals' offense from its doldrums.

It's not the ideal spot for a freshman quarterback to make his first start, but that's what lies ahead for Jake Fromm of Georgia. Baker Mayfield didn't need to whomp the hell out of Ohio State on Saturday to convince anybody that he's a star.
