The Texans lost two cornerbacks. Johnathan Joseph hurt his right shoulder while making a tackle in the first half and didn’t return. Kevin Johnson hurt his left knee in the third quarter and was out. The Texans already were missing LB Brian Cushing. He’s in the NFL’s concussion protocol and has been suspended 10 games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
BENGALS: CB Adam “Pacman” Jones returned from his one-game NFL suspension for an offseason conviction and hurt his right elbow in the fourth quarter, but returned and finished the game.
The Texans play at New England. They’re 1-8 against the Patriots, including a 34-16 playoff loss last season.
The Bengals play at Green Bay for the first time since 2009. They’ve won three straight against the Packers.
