Cincinnati Only Down 9-7 at Half in a Game Where Andy Dalton Has Three Yards Passing


Andy Dalton is 4 for 10 for 3 passing yards. No, seriously. The Bengals are only down at the half by 2 points, though, because the Texans keep settling for field goals and Gary Kubiak is as conservative as advertised, and because Matt Schaub threw a horrible interception return for touchdown to Leon Hall.

Houston has outgained Cincinnati 250 to 53, but only has three field goals. They have kicked a long field goal on 4th and 2, and two field goals from inside the 10 on fourth and short. The third one was particularly a poor decision. Right before the two minute warning, Houston trailed 7-6 inside the 5. If they go for it, they either get a decisive touchdown, or get the ball back in good field position, because you know Cincinnati is going conservative to try to burn timeouts against their own end zone.
