Prior to Sunday’s game, BattleRedNation.com gave you some under the radar players for both teams that could make impacts. We’ll review how those players performed on Sunday.

When the Texans have the ball on offense:

Steve Slaton - Slaton was productive as he ran for 53 yards and a touchdown on 15 attempts. He also caught two passes for 13 yards.

Interior offensive line - The Texans interior line paved the way for 109 rushing yards and allowed just one sack.

Owen Daniels - Daniels had a tough day as he caught just three passes for 21 yards, but he opened up the outside for superstar Andre Johnson.

Rashad Jeantry - Jeantry led the Bengals in tackles with nine, but it wasn’t enough for Cincinnati.

Leon Hall - Hall had four tackles but no pass breakups. It was a tough day for the Bengals corner.

When the Bengals have the ball on offense:

Ryan Fitzpatrick - Fitzpatrick wasn’t horrible, but he wasn’t good either. The young QB completed 20 of 32 passes for 155 yards and two interceptions. He did gain 42 yards on the ground for the Bengals.

Chris Henry - Henry was a non-factor as he caught just one pass for three yards.

Kenny Watson - Watson was seldom used as he caught just one pass for five yards.

Zac Diles - Diles led the Texans with 12 tackles.

DeMarcus Faggins - Faggins had four stops and played solid on the day.
