Brandon Tate and Adam Jones have split time the last two years as returners. Tate outplayed Jones in 2013 enough to take a larger piece of the pie, a trend that may continue this year.

Week 12: at Houston Texans

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Andy Dalton has yo-yo'ed from entirely awful (10/33 for 86 yards receiving, zero TDs and three interceptions thrown vs. the Browns two weeks ago) to efficient (16/22 for 220 yards passing, with three TDs and zero interceptions thrown at New Orleans last week). Last week, he re-established chemistry with A.J. Green throwing him nine targets for 6/127/1 receiving, while Rex Burkhead (three for 3/36/0) and Mohamed Sanu (six for 3/23/0) helped move the chains. Jermaine Gresham (three for 2/13/2) hauled in two scores from Dalton last weekend but has been involved only erratically from week to week for the Bengals - one of the TD catches was extremely fortunate. In any case, though, the Bengals' passing attack bounced back under hostile conditions in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome last Sunday. The Houston pass D allowed 20/50 for 317 yards passing, one TD and one interception (with two sacks for -13 yards) to the Browns last week, and saw Mark Sanchez and Nick Foles pile up 24/34 for 293 net yards, three TDs and three interceptions, with four sacks taken for -33 yards back in Week 9. As you can see, 300+ yards passing games have been routine for Houston's opponents during November (the Texans are ranked 31st in the NFL averaging 278.1 net passing yards per game, with 19 passing scores balanced by 11 interceptions and 21 sacks generated to date - tied for eighth in the NFL and 19th in the NFL, respectively). This looks like a great matchup for Dalton and company.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs JAX (1 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)

Tate had one catch for 10 yards. He made a nice move to get free and haul in a pass for a first down. No matter what happens with the receivers in front of him or around him, Tate isn't going to be a fantasy factor.
