To kick off the NFL’s postseason slate, the Cincinnati Bengals will travel to Reliant Stadium on Saturday afternoon to take on the Houston Texans in a game featuring two teams headed in the opposite direction.

If not for Week 14's 20-19 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, the Bengals would be entering Saturday's contest on an eight-game winning streak and playing a home game with the Indianapolis Colts as the AFC North champions.
