Neither offense has scored a touchdown after two quarters.
Hey Houston and Cincinnati, NFL fans are watching and waiting. And waiting, and waiting. Just for anything to happen.
A rather lackluster first half has finished and the Texans lead the Bengals by a score of 9-7. Are the defenses playing that good or the offenses playing that bad? Mostly these offenses just have not played very well.
The game's only touchdown came on a Leon Hall pick-six in the second quarter off of Matt Schaub. Still, has Schaub and his costly interception been as bad as Andy Dalton? The Bengals' quarterback is 4-of-10 for 3 yards. That is actually 0.3 yards per attempt and more passing completions than passing yards. Reminder, it is halftime.
A.J. Green does not have a target. Andre Johnson has one catch for 19 yards and a bad drop on another pass that would have been a touchdown. These two teams feature defensive stars like J.J. Watt on Houston and Geno Atkins on Cincinnati, but it's the offensive stars' lack of production that stands out so far today.
Let's hope that by the second half, they will wake up and so will the fans.
