DeShaun Watson rushed for the game's only touchdown as Houston claimed their first win of the National Football League season with a 13-9 victory at the winless Cincinnati Bengals.

He matched his career high with four interceptions and lost a fumble during a 20-0 loss to the Ravens on Sunday, the first time Cincinnati was shut out in a home opener.

The Houston Texans will play the Cincinnati Bengals in Thursday Night Football on September 14, 2017, start time at 8:25 PM ET, at Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Cincinnati Bengals Quarterback Andy Dalton had an average game going 16 for 31 and throwing for 170 yards.

It's not the NFL's fault that there aren't a lot of very good quarterbacks out there right now.

Bengals rookie wide receiver John Ross will likely make his season debut against the? O'Brien is not expecting any of those five players to be available, which is a tough blow to the Texans' depth this week. Despite that, he led Houston to a win on his 22nd birthday.

No Bengals team has made the playoffs after starting 0-2.

Watch Florida beat Tennessee on last-second miracle play
Instead of using the nine seconds and two timeouts to move closer , Florida (1-1, 1-0 SEC) went for it all, and the move paid off. On the ground, John Kelly rushed for 80 yards in 18 carries while Carlin Fils-aime added 41 yards and two touchdowns.

BAD NUMBERS: The Texans last opened a season 0-2 in 2015. "You've got to give him different looks, not just drop into coverage", cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said.

The NFL's opening Sunday, after a bizarrely offensive Chiefs-Patriots Thursday opener, looked to be more like the fifth preseason game.

They thought they finally had a touchdown when Tyler Eifert caught a pass from Dalton in the end zone in the third quarter - the videoboard broke into a touchdown song - but the tight end had stepped out of bounds before making the catch, nullifying it. Cincinnati settled for its third field goal. The Texans, with or without holdout left tackle Duane Brown, feature an offensive line that is going to be problematic for the foreseeable future. He finished the game 12 of 23 for 102 yards and a touchdown.

The Texans relied heavily on their rushing attack, with 168 yards, including Watson's 67. Dalton was 20-35 for 224 yards.

"I think the guys who stepped in did a great job". Johnson was impressive, finishing with 52 total tackles, one interception and nine pass defenses.

Cincinnati won the first three games of the series including beginning in the Texans' inaugural year of 2002 until October 2005. Linebacker Brian Cushing is serving a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Now he gets a chance to build from the ground up with his new starter under center, while Tom Savage takes on a backup role.
