The Cincinnati Bengals will be greeted with the type of weather they'd usually see in June versus January as the weather is in the 70's in Houston, Texas. However, the Texans don't plan to greet the Bengals with the warm reception as Houston plans to host their first playoff game since the Oilers were in town.
Yet the Texans come into Saturday's playoff game with a three-game losing streak and have no momentum after beating the Bengals four weeks ago in an epic 20-19 comeback victory in Paul Brown Stadium. T.J. Yates led the way with a 4th-quarter drive that essentially clinched the Texans playoff spot and the AFC South divisional title.
Are the Bengals ready to get revenge, or will the Texans be able to avenge their loss? We shall soon find out on Saturday afternoon.
Game date, time: 4:30 pm ET, Saturday, January 7th
Location: Reliant Stadium, Houston, TX
TV channel: NBC
Odds: Texans -4
