The playoffs are finally here!
The Houston Texans hosted the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday, winning at home by a score of 19-13.
Needless to say, there were some incredible highlights with both teams featuring some of the NFL's top players, and we've got the biggest game-changing plays here for your viewing pleasure.
On to the highlights!
J.J. Watt Sacks Andy Dalton
Leon Hall Baits Matt Schaub and Scores
Houston looked to have all the momentum in the game when Matt Schaub threw an ill-advised pass toward fullback James Casey.
Leon Hall had been baiting him to do so, and he leaped out in front of the pass for an easy interception that he took back 21 yards for a pivotal touchdown that put the Bengals up by a score of 7-6.
Arian Foster Finally Punches One In for the Texans
Due to Hall's interception returned for a touchdown, Houston only led by two points at the half, 9-7.
That all changed when Foster punched one in from one yard out to give the Texans a 16-7 lead midway through the third quarter.
A.J. Green Beats Jonathan Joseph Deep
The two of them hooked up for a gorgeous 45-yard bomb that set up the Bengals with their first scoring opportunity of the game on offense.
Unfortunately, Green's efforts didn't turn into seven points for the Bengals, but kicker Josh Brown converted from 34 yards out to pull the Bengals to within six points.
Jonathan Joseph With the Dagger
That didn't last long, though, as Joseph intercepted Dalton on a post play—a play in which Green didn't seem to be expecting to get the ball. Green never saw the ball coming, never reached out to snag a pretty good throw, and Joseph made an easy play for the pick.
The worst part about the play from the Bengals' perspective is that it happened on their own 40-yard line, and Joseph returned it 14 yards to put the Texans in scoring range. From there, Houston kicked a field goal to go up by nine points.
That turned out to be the play that sealed the victory for Houston, as the Texans won at home by a score of 19-13.
