Cincinnati Bengals at Houston Texans (Saturday 4:30pm)
Bengals haven't beaten a playoff team all season. The Texans are down to
their third string QB with TJ Yates, who leads Houston in this game,
the first ever playoff match-up of rookie QB's in the Super Bowl era.
Can the banged up Texans beat up on the Bengals? RB Arian Foster will
hold the key to that answer.
Detroit Lions at New Orleans Saints (Saturday 8pm)
Saints overwhelmed the Lions back on December 4th, 31-17. This one's
the first ever battle of 5,000 yard passers in Matthew Stafford (5,038)
and Drew Brees (5,476). The key will be who turns the ball over less.
Atlanta Falcons at NY Giants (Sunday 1pm)
teams won three of our to make the playoffs. Would it surprise you to
see that the Falcons outscored the Giants (402-394) while giving up less
points (350-400) this regular season?
Pittsburgh Steelers at Denver Broncos (Sunday 4:30pm)
Steelers, with QB Ben Roethlisberger already dealing with a high ankle
sprain, will be without RB Rashard Mendenhall (torn ACL) and CB Ryan
Clark (sickle cell trait). Denver comes in losers of three in a row by a
combined score of 88-40. First one to ten might win this thing and
it's tough to think that Tim Tebow can do that.
Last week: 11-5
