    Week 6 - Texans (49) vs. Bengals (42)

    Schaub vs. Palmer / A. Johnson vs. C. OchoCinco

    This game was a barn burner and by far the best game of the season.. Two high powered teams meeting head to head both with only one loss going into the game, something had to give!!

    The opening kickoff was returned 99 yards by the Bengals proving yet again that the Texans special teams is in massive need of an upgrade and the Special Teams coach is on the hotseat, after allowing over 300 yards of return yards on special teams.. Field position is key and the Texans keep allowing their opponents to start on their side of the field.

    The score at the end of the first quarter was 21-7 Bengals after a kickoff return and Slaton fumble recovered for a touchdown, things didn't look great for the, down but not out, Texans.

    Early in the second quarter Steve Slaton took a 71 yard pass to the endzone and then late in the 2nd quarter answered again on an 8 yard TD run with only 1 minute left before the half, it looked like things would be a tie at the half..


    Poor special teams play allows the Bengals to get all the way to the 30 yard line with right under a minute to play.. As time expires Ochocinco catches a fade in the back of the endzone, that some believed wasn't a completion but with no time left of the clock it wasn't reviewable...

    The 3rd quarter was all Texans as Slaton and Moats both found the endzone and the Texans took their first lead of the game with 2:39 seconds left in the 3rd quarter and would never relinquish it!
