Texans beat the Bengals in their first playoff game, 31-10
Since the Texans joined the NFL in 2002, they haven't been in the playoffs. That all changed this year as the Texans started this Season with an impressive 7-3 record, but their luck seemed to change when Matt Schaub went down with a broken foot. Going into the playoffs with a 3-game losing streak and a rookie QB, things looked gloomy for Gary Kubiak's squad. On Saturday, when the Bengals came into Reliant Stadium, the atmosphere was electric. Cincinatti would quiet down the crowd a bit by drawing first blood, but Andy Dalton, the rookie out of TCU, would throw three INTs as Arian Foster had a great game to put away the Bengals and send Houston to Baltimore.
