Less than a month ago, the Houston Texans looked like a shoo-in for the No. 1 seeding in the AFC. Now, they’re hanging on for dear life. The Texans have lost three of four and play host to the Cincinnati Bengals, who have won three in a row. Cincinnati’s pass rush is particularly potent. The Bengals set a club record this season with 51 sacks, 40 by the defensive line. That stifling defense has held opponents to 13 points or fewer in six of the last eight games.
