AT CINCINNATI (0-1)

TV: NFL Network, 5:15 PDT

Line: Bengals by 6 ½.

Over/under: 38.

Sam Farmer’s pick: Deshaun Watson’s ankle is sturdy enough to make his starting debut. The Bengals are due to bounce back, though, because they aren’t going to play that poorly two weeks in a row. Bengals 21, Texans 17
