Here are the inactive lists for the Bengals and Texans with just over an hour until kick-off:
Bengals: CB Jason Allen, TE Richard Quinn, DT Devon Still, DT Brandon Thompson, WR Dane Sanzenbacher, RB Daniel “Boom” Herron, and S Chris Crocker
Texans: OT Antoine Caldwell, FB Tyler Clutts, CB Roc Carmichael, OL Andrew Gardner, CB Stanford Routt, OL Cody White, and NT Terrell McClain
For the Bengals, there are no real surprises, considering Crocker showed up as doubtful on yesterday’s injury report. Unfortunately, the quad injury he suffered in the first quarter last week apparently hasn’t healed enough for their liking. This may create a problem for the secondary, as the Bengals will more than likely turn to Nate Clements and Taylor Mays to fill the void. Much has been made of how much the defense’s improvement over the second half of the season coincided with Crocker’s return. Thompson and Still have been regulars on the inactive list thanks to Cincy’s deep defensive line. Sanze...

AFC Wild Card Game - #6 Bengals at #3 Texans
QB - Matt Schaub over Andy Dalton - I really should be going with Dalton here but I'm going to stick with Schaub.
RB - Foster over BGE - This is obvious.
WR - Johnson over Green - This is probably the last year Johnson would...
The Bengals have made the playoffs for the 2nd straight year, but like last year, they did it by winning the games they were supposed to and nothing else (well not technically nothing else this year, but close to it). The Bengals went 9-0 against non-playoff teams last season, but 0-7 against playoff teams, a number that grew to 0-8 when they lost to the Texans in the first round...

As tempting as it is to go against Matt Schaub, whose team is reeling right now, especially since this is Matt Schaub’s first playoff start (quarterbacks are 5-13 ATS at home...

The Cincinnati Bengals are coming into the game on Saturday against the Houston Texans in a lot better shape than most people think. They currently are on a three game winning streak including beating the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers, so confidence shouldn’t be that much of an issue for this team at all.

The Houston Texans, who struggled the last month of the season, beat the Cincinnati Bengals tonight 19-13 behind their All-Pros running back Arian Foster and defensive end J.J. Watt.
The Texans, who eliminated the Bengals last season as well, were paced by four field goals by Shayne Graham of 48, 27, 22 and 24 yards and a 1 yard touchdown run by Foster, who finished with 140 yards...
The Houston Texans have the Patriots right where they want them. Well, not really. They were on their way to a first round bye when they **** the bed and played their way out of the bye.Houston probably regret hyping up the week 14 matchup against the Patriots. They wore letterman jackets on the way to Gillette Stadium.The game didn't start out great for the Texans going down...
Kubiak needs to get his act together after ugly wild-card win.
The Houston Texans earned a return trip to Foxboro following their win over Cincinnati Saturday night. New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick had his conference call today, and he surprisingly was forthcoming with information. That's not to say The Hoodie explained the game plan in detail, but he did give a little more than expected for a Sunday before the Divisional...
