It’s win-or-go-home now as the NFL playoffs kickoff with a rematch of last year’s wild card game between the Cincinnati Bengals (10-6) and the Houston Texans (12-4). Momentum is on the side of the Bengals, who had to win eight of their past nine games just to get into the postseason, while the Texans are hobbling into the playoffs after losing three of their past four games.

Still, the Bengals have never won a playoff game away from Cincinnati, and Marvin Lewis is 0-3 all-time in postseason contests, but this has been a season of firsts for the Bengals. The Texans did win last year’s wild card game by a 31-10 score after the game Bengals held a 10-7 lead late into the second-quarter, but Houston scored 24-straight points to end their season.
