NFL Playoffs Open Thread: Bengals at Texans

HOUSTON, TX - JANUARY 07: Houston Texans themed "Storm Troopers" pose for a photo outside the stadium prior to the Texans hosting the Cincinnati Bengals during their 2012 AFC Wild Card Playoff game at Reliant Stadium on January 7, 2012 in Houston, Texas. (Photo by Bob Levey/Getty Images)

It's the first time the Houston Texans have made it to the playoffs - ever. It took that expansion team quite a while to get going and they were close to getting into the playoffs for years before finally making it.

Meanwhile, they face a Cincinnati Bengals team that hasn't won a playoff game since 1991 - ironically, that win came against the Houston Oilers.

One of these teams will do something that hasn't happened in 20 years: win a playoff game for their respective cities. Which one will it be? Can Andy Dalton get A.J. Green behind the Texans' secondary? Can Arian Foster run wild? Can T.J. Yates be effective?

Discuss the game, the playoffs, the Bucs, coaching searches and whatever else here.
