Texans Vs. Bengals: Cincinnati Strikes First On A Cedric Benson Touchdown Run, Lead 7-0

The first few possessions for each team resulted in each team punting the ball, and it could have been due to nerves since this was the first playoff game for the Houston Texans. On the Bengals second possession of the game they earned a 52-yard pass interference call on the Texans Glover Quin when he was defending rookie wide receiver A.J. Green which put the ball at the Texans 20-yard line.

Then on a third-and-seven Andy Dalton connected with running back Brian Leonard took a short pass and ended up gaining 16 yards for the first down at the 1-yard line. On the next play Bengals running back Cedric Benson powered his way in for the touchdown from one yard out to put the Benglas up 7-0.
