Houston quarterback Matt Schaub completed 29-of-38 passes for 262 yards and an interception Saturday in his first career playoff victory.Fantasy Spin:This wasn't Schaub's best effort but certainly the Texans (losers of three out of four to end the regular season) are happy to get the win. Next, Houston will head to Foxborough to take on the AFC East Champion Patriots. New England blew the Texans out when they played in Week 14 (42-14).

Texan's Antonio Smith: "It's gotta be personal"

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...

Wild Card weekend: Saturday games

We wait and wait and wait after the Super Bowl ends each season for the start of a new one, and once the NFL kickoffs, it seems like it ends too quickly. The playoffs are here, and we start off with a rematch of last year’s Wild Card round with the Cincinnati Bengals and the Houston Texans.  Of course, Matt Schaub is with the Texans for this playoff run, and not TJ Yates. So...

Do the Bengals or Texans have the stronger team? Comparing wildcard teams by position. 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.

Bengals lose to Texans 19-13, extend futility

Couldn't stop Arian Foster. Couldn't make that one big play when it was right at their fingertips. And, in an ending so sickeningly familiar, the Bengals couldn't break one of the NFL's longest streaks of playoff futility. Plenty of blame to go around for this one. Andy Dalton overthrew an open A.J. Green in the end zone in the closing minutes, and the Houston Texans...
