For the first playoff game in Houston Texans history, fans will remember that Tom Hammond and Mike Mayock were on the announcer's desk for the historic occasion. The Cincinnati Bengals and the Houston Texans will do battle Saturday afternoon in the first playoff game for the 2012 postseason. While the Detroit Lions and the New Orleans Saints will play in the evening, the Bengals and Texans will get the "B" team treatment this weekend. Hammond and Mayock will handle play-by-play and color duties, while Alex Flanagan will work as the sideline reporter rounding out the triumvirate.
Hammond and Mayock can usually be found working together for Notre Dame Fighting Irish football games on Saturday's, but Mayock will usually crossover and work for the NFL Network for their Thursday and Saturday games late in the regular season.
