The Texans move onto the divisional round after beating the Bengals. Houston now travels to Baltimore where they'll play the Ravens on Sunday, January 15.

We have the results of our first playoff game, the AFC Wild Card matchup between the Houston Texans and Cincinnati Bengals. The Texans, playing in their first franchise playoff game also won their first playoff game and will move onto face the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional round of the playoffs.

The game will take place at 1:00 p.m. (ET) on Sunday, January 15. The Ravens will be the home team thanks to the fact they're the No. 2 seed. The Texans are the No. 3 after winning the AFC South.

The Texans and Ravens played earlier this year on October 13 which the Ravens won, 29-14. Baltimore hasn't lost at home this year and I imagine some of those pass rushers like Terrell Suggs are anxious to play rookie T.J. Yates. We can already tell you Arian Foster will be a huge part of this game, as he always is. The Texans defense is playing a lot like Baltimore's usually does ranking fourth in the NFL. The Ravens, as usual, have a terrific defense and an offense that some feel is finally ready to turn the corner.
