- Cincinnati @ Houston
- Of course this is going to be bias towards the Bengals; however, there is reason to believe that the Bengals can come away with their first playoff win since 1990. Ironically that 1990 win came against Houston, but it was the Oilers, not the Texans. There was an area for concern for Cincinnati in their last game against Baltimore when they had issues moving the ball against, at the time, the 20th ranked defense in the NFL. The one argument that could be made, is that the Bengals were not trying. Wide Receiver A.J. Green was not targeted until the final drive for the first string, when Andy Dalton went 5/5 with a touchdown. The Houston Texans’ Defensive Line will cause some issues for the Bengals front line, but Jermaine Gresham should cause match-up problems for the Texans secondary. Arian Foster should have a productive game, but the Bengals defensive line should give Texans’ Quarterback Matt Schaub some problems. The Bengals will come out with a win in a close one.
