Line: Bengals by 11
Health and efficiency have helped the Bengals to the best start in franchise history. QB Andy Dalton has passed for more than 2,200 yards with 18 TDs and only 4 INTs. The only thing better would be to spank the Texans, who have knocked the Bengals out of the playoffs two of the past four years. Texans backup QB T.J. Yates has two wins over Cincy, including one in the playoffs. A victory by Houston could slide them back into a tie for the AFC South lead with Indianapolis, who will be without QB Andrew Luck for the foreseeable future.
