CINCINNATI – The Houston Texans beat the Cincinnati Bengals 10-6 on Monday night to improve to 4-5 on the season and share of first place in AFC South. The Bengals had been undefeated entering the game while the Texans were coming off their bye week.

The Texans did not allow a touchdown in the game and have now gone 10 quarters without allowing a touchdown.

The Texans took the lead in the fourth quarter when recently signed T.J. Yates came in relief to hook up with DeAndre Hopkins for a 22-yard touchdown. Yates was forced into action after starter Brian Hoyer had to be checked for a concussion. The Texans host the New York Jets next Sunday at NRG Stadium.
