Houston Texans (4-4) are looking to build off of their recent success and hope to add to it with another win this Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home. While their scoring hasn’t been particularly prolific this season, their defense has often come through big. On average they average 23.5 points per game with 19 touchdowns from 19 passing touchdowns; their rushing attack has contributed three scores with average yardage per carry (3.3). Defensively they’ve held their own, conceding an average of 20.6 points per game against their opponents this season – holding your opponents at bay with 26.5 points conceded per game allowed per game this season versus their opponent’s 26.6 average point advantage!
Houston’s Offensive Potential
At their recent matchup against the Buccaneers, the Texans displayed their offensive prowess by scoring 29 second-half points to orchestrate an extraordinary comeback and secure a 39-37 win. Quarterback CJ Stroud had an outstanding game amassing 470 passing yards and five touchdown passes; Devin Singletary added 26 rushing yards on his own while Noah Brown led their receiving corps with 153 receiving yards and one touchdown while Dalton Schultz registered 130 receiving yards with another score while Tank Dell contributed 114 receiving yards plus two scores himself!
Recent games by the Texans have highlighted several noteworthy trends. On one hand, their underdog status has often worked against them; nine out of their last ten road games following wins have been losses as an underdog; on the other hand, covering the spread has often worked in their favor – they covered each of their seven underdog games since January 2016. When facing AFC North opponents in November games as underdogs they lost each first half while scoring the first touchdown five out of six times and winning the first quarter three times in four such contests against teams with winning records.
Bengals Remain Inconsistent
On the other side of the field, the Cincinnati Bengals have had an up-and-down season that they hope to build upon by finding consistency. Their offense has struggled, scoring an average of 19.4 points per game during the year with 12 touchdowns coming via passing; only three came via running backs. Yet their defense has performed admirably as it allowed an average of 20.3 points per game while amassing 11 interceptions while giving up 7 rushing touchdowns and an average of 5.0 yards per carry against running plays.
Recent results of their game against Buffalo Bills showcased the Bengals’ strength of victory with just three second-half points scored against them on their way to a 24-18 triumph. Quarterback Joe Burrow had 348 passing yards and two touchdowns; Joe Mixon led the ground game with 37 rushing yards while also scoring an important touchdown; Tee Higgins provided a key receiving threat with 110 receiving yards on 8 receptions.
NFL Latest Odds: CIN -7.5 ; O/U 46
Recent Bengals performances can be highlighted by several trends. Their team has excelled at winning games at Paycor Stadium immediately following a victory, winning nine out of their past ten such matchups at Paycor. In November games, the Bengals have proven reliable as underdogs, covering each of their six contests this month. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has shown a knack for scoring first touchdowns in six of seven home games against AFC opponents in recent history. However, they have faced challenges in the opening quarter in three of their four post-win games as favorites; on an encouraging note however, the Bengals have established an impressive trend of winning first halves in eight of nine November games at home as favorites.
Statistically, both teams possess unique attributes that contribute to their strengths and challenges. The Bengals have struggled in the rushing department this season, ranking 32nd with just 75.9 rushing yards per game on average during their season. On special teams, however, they excelled with punt returns leading the league with an average of 30.0 punt return yards per game this year. Meanwhile, the Texans displayed impressive defensive capabilities during second-quarter games, ranking second overall by only allowing an average of 3.8 points per game during this period while also tied for second with 75.0% success rates in second-quarter win percentage success rate success rates – an impressive feat indeed for a franchise so young.
