NFL Power Rankings Final: Texans One Spot Behind The Bengals

The Houston Texans may have a better record, a better point differential as well the home field going into Saturday's AFC playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but they're ranked behind Cincinnati in the last NFL Power Rankings of the season from SBNation:

10. Cincinnati Bengals (9-7, LW: 8): They lost last Sunday, but still made the playoffs. I have them ranked above their first round opponent for a reason. I think Cincy is better than Houston and they win this game.

11. Houston Texans (10-6, LW: 9): The Texans are hosting the Bengals for their first playoff game in franchise history. Unfortunately, I'm not picking for that to last long.

In the teams only meeting this season, Houston won 20-19 in Cincinnati, with rookie QB T.J. Yates marching the Texans down the field to set up a game-winning TD pass to Kevin Walter with 2 seconds left.

However, since that game, Houston is 0-3 while the Bengals are 2-1.
