Bengals vs. Texans: 5 Matchups That Will Decide Wild Card Weekend Clash

The Cincinnati Bengals and Houston Texans feature superstars on both sides of the ball, meaning there are some incredible matchups to watch for when these two teams square off at Reliant Stadium on Saturday for an AFC Wild Card showdown. 

You can bet the Bengals are hoping for a different result than what happened a year ago under these exact same circumstances. 

Arian Foster ran wild, Andy Dalton threw three interceptions—one of which was taken back for a touchdown by none other than J.J. Watt—and the Texans blew the Bengals out at home by a score of 31-10. 

The biggest difference this season is that Matt Schaub is healthy and will be leading the Texans offense, rather than T.J. Yates. 

Winning this game will take a team effort, but there's no doubt individual matchups will have a huge impact on the outcome. With that in mind, let's take a look at the five biggest matchups that will determine which team gets to move on to the next round.
