Bengals Vs. Texans, NFL Playoffs 2012: Tom Hammond And Mike Mayock To Announce Afternoon Game On NBC

The Cincinnati Bengals and the Houston Texans will face off Saturday afternoon in the first AFC Wild Card game of the 2012 postseason. With the Detroit Lions and the New Orleans Saints earning primetime status, the Bengals and Texans will get the "B" team treatment this weekend. Tom Hammond and Mike Mayock will handle play-by-play and color duties, while Alex Flanagan works the sideline.

Hammond and Mayock typically team up for NBC's coverage of Notre Dame Football. Last year's Wild Card game between the Seattle Seahawks and the New Orleans Saints was the first time the team ever handled an NFL Playoff game. You can catch them announcing Saturday's game live at 4:30 p.m. ET on NBC, or online at NBCSports.com and NFL.com.
