The Bengals came into the game having lost six of seven, but Jeff Blake threw a pair of touchdown passes to Carl Pickens and Eric Bienemy ran for a score to snap the skid. The Cincinnati defense sacked Houston quarterbacks Chris Chandler and Will Furrer four times and special teams contributed with three Doug Pelfrey field goals and a blocked punt for a safety.
