Bengals Vs. Texans, 2012 NFL Playoffs: Want To Watch Football Online Legally This Weekend? Of Course You Do

If you are not able to get in front of a television for Saturday's AFC Wild Card matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Houston Texans, you just might be in luck. The NFL has made it possible for this season's 2012 Playoffs will be available for streaming online for free. For Saturday's playoff games, you will be able to watch on NBCSports.com and NFL.com.

Typically, the only options to watching football online was through DIRECTV's NFL Sunday Ticket, but with the regular season over, there are not any available "legal" options for football fans to utilize for the playoffs until now.

There are some who think that Andre Johnson will have a breakout day, since being virtually unable to play for the last few weeks due to injury. Can the Bengals shut him down? We will see on Saturday afternoon.
