Ready or not, the Houston Texans are only days away from the franchise's first playoff game.
Houston (10-6) was locked into the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoffs before Sunday's finale against Tennessee. The Texans will face the Bengals (9-7), who got into the postseason despite losing to Baltimore in their finale.
Last week, Texans players talked about the importance of regaining momentum after consecutive losses. They lost 23-22 when they botched a 2-point conversion at the end, then said after the game that their three-game skid was irrelevant.
The Texans have new injury concerns. Rookie quarterback T.J. Yates, who started the last five games, bruised his left shoulder on his first snap against Tennessee. Coach Gary Kubiak expects Yates to start on Saturday.
