Cincinnati Bengals @ Houston Texans- This is a rematch of the Week 14 match up where T.J. Yates zipped a six-yard touchdown pass to put the
Texans in the playoffs for the first time in franchise history. Andy Dalton’s touchdown-interception rate against top-five defenses is 4-7 (Texans’ defense is #1). The difference in this game will be the turnover ratio, and Dalton is a turnover-prone quarterback, while the Texans are second in the AFC in turnover differential (+7). The Bengals are having a surprising 9-7 season, but if you analyze their record, then you will see that that while they are 9-0 against non-playoff teams, they are 0-7 against playoff teams this year. Make that 0-8.
Texans 24, Bengals 13
