The Houston Texans defense has stopped the Cincinnati Bengals offense on the past six possessions. The last two Bengals drives have resulted in Andy Dalton throwing interceptions to the Texans Johnathan Joseph and Danieal Manning. Off of the Manning interception the Texans needed only three plays to go up 31-10 on a 42-yard touchdown run by Arian Foster. On the day Foster has rushed for 153 yards and two touchdowns.
The Texans defense which has been great all year has had another excellent game and deserves a lot credit in what looks like a Texans win late in the fourth quarter. Their defense has forced Dalton into three interceptions and has held the Bengals rushing game to under 100 yards late in the fourth quarter.
The Texans now just needed to keep up their defensive pressure and not allow the Bengals to mount a comeback and they will be on their way to the AFC Divisional round.
