Deshaun Watson scrambled 49 yards for the game’s only touchdown, and the Houston Texans beat the Bengals, 13-9, in Cincinnati on Thursday night.

Rookie quarterback Watson won his first career NFL start for Houston (1-1) thanks to his instincts — and a defense that kept the Bengals out of the end zone for the second consecutive week.

Andy Dalton completed 19 of 34 passes for 216 yards for Cincinnati (0-2), but he couldn’t guide his team to a touchdown. The Bengals were held to 287 total yards on the game. They had just 82 yards rushing on 24 carries.

Watson threw for 125 yards and ran for 67 more, including a dazzling scamper for a touchdown just before halftime that helped the Texans win. Houston had just 266 yards of offense in the game, but they avoided turnovers and capitalized on their few scoring opportunities.
