Texans- Bengals: Matt Schaub lights Up Bengals Defense | NFL Player Rankings

Houston Texans v Cincinnati Bengals

The Cardiac Cats took on Matt Schaub and the Texans this week in a big matchup for both teams. While the Bengals got a lot of hype coming into the game it was the Texans that would end up the winner.

Carson Palmer not a Fantasy Starter

While the Bengals are having a solid season, Carson Palmer is not having one of his better statistical years. It was clear to see in this game that the Bengals did not want to abandon the running game and Cedric Benson.

Even when the team was down by eleven points early in the 4th quarter, they continued to try and get the running game going. If a fantasy quarterback is worth his salt you want him throwing the football at that point.

Until we see the Bengals passing attack used more aggressively, I would keep Palmer on your bench or cut him all together.

Texans Go Off

Andre Johnson and running back Steve Slaton both went over 100 yards receiving in this game. While it is always impressive to have two players go over a 100 yards in a game, Schaub’s 392 passing yards and 4 touchdowns top those efforts.

It’s clear to see that the Texans are going to be a full on passing team for this entire season. The running game struggled again as Slaton was benched in the fourth quarter for fumbling the football.

Expect the Texans to lean on their quarterback to win football games from here on out.
