Rematch time. Houston is slipping quickly while Cincinnati is hitting their stride. Should be interesting.

Discuss.

I am usually all for what teams did in their final few weeks leading up to the playoffs, but I think Houston gets it back together and wins by 10+.

Not sure who to pick. Houston doesn't look sharp at all. One prediction I will make is that AJ Green has a monster game.

Houston isn't the same team that started the season and they haven't been for awhile. Cincinnati is a team that can beat them. Gresham will have a big game against the beaten LBs. Bengals by 4.

Houston will find a way to get things back on track.

As bad as Houston has been lately, I think they get it done here.

Bengals, the Texans have gone into the playoffs in the worst way possible. Going from 1-3, losing 3/4 games, their offense looking like ****, mediocre defense...

I think Cincinnati's defense will give Schaub problems. Foster will get his yards, but I think the Bengals sneak by 20-17

This should be a close one. Houston is good, but not great.

Houston: 24

Bengals: 20

Is it wrong the be rooting for perennial AFC basement dwellers to do well? I think this might be the rise of some good Bengal years.

I think the Texans will get it together well enough to overcome the Bengals, but that's as far as they get.

Cincinnati. Think that the regular season was a month too long for Houston and whatever magic they had left in the bag's all but gone.

Houston. Cincinnati and the playoffs mix about as well as coffee and gin.

I'm generally hesitant to pick a Marvin Lewis coached team to win a big game, especially on the road but I think they get it done here.

I just don't know what has happened to Houston, seems like the balloon has burst and they are sinking..

Not saying they can't win, in which on paper they should..I wouldn't mind if Cincinnati wins as well.

Houston in a close game. Something like 20-17.
