The Cincinnati Bengals are not holding back in their assessment of the Houston Texans.
Despite losing at home to the woeful and depleted Texans, Bengals players felt the need to voice their thoughts on their opponent:

The Bengals and Texans are both pretty bad, perhaps the two worst teams in football. Regardless, the Bengals can’t call any team worse than themselves after dropping to 0-2, let alone both losses being to, at best, average Ravens and Texans teams.
To be fair, Cincinnati’s defense and special teams are far from being the NFL’s worst. Both are closer to being top-10 units than they to being bottom feeders. They’ve kept this team in both games and fought valiantly to the bitter end.
Unfortunately, they’ve fallen victim to what is easily the worst offense in football after two games. It’s a team game, and sadly, this part of the Bengals’ team has made them one of the NFL’s worst overall teams. It’s hard to see it getting better against the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.
