The Houston Texans defeated the Cincinnati Bengals today in the first game of Wild Card Weekend in the NFL Playoffs.
Despite rolling with third string QB TJ Yates, the Texans ran all over the Bengals. Led by Arian Foster, the Texans rushed for 188 yards on Cinci, securing a win in their first ever playoff game.
The Bengals, who were led by rookie QB Andy Dalton, couldn’t keep up with Houston’s aggressive defense. Dalton threw three interceptions vs. no TDs, and Cinci managed just 76 yards on the ground.
The Texans will move on to face the Baltimore Ravens next week in the divisional round. Congratulations to the Texans.
