New, comments

We take a look at the Bengals-Texans matchup, and provide an open thread for discussion.

The 2013 NFL playoffs are ready to get underway with the wild card round. We get things going with the Houston Texans hosting the Cincinnati Bengals at 1:30 p.m. PT on NBC. The Texans claimed the AFC South division title, while the Bengals secured the second wild card spot.

The Texans faced the Bengals in last year's opening round and took care of business behind a big game from Arian Foster. Considering the Texans will have Matt Schaub instead of T.J. Yates, the Texans should be able to handle their business.

The most important game of the day is once against Vikings-Packers, but for now we can enjoy an appetizer of Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, Andy Dalton and A.J. Green.
