2012 NFL Playoffs: Printable Bracket Updated After Houston Texans Advance

We now know one of next weekend's NFL playoff matchups after the Houston Texans put away the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday afternoon, 31-10. With the win, the No. 3 seed Texans already know their fate, and will face the Baltimore Ravens for the right to play for the AFC Championship. The Ravens, as the No. 2 seed, held a first-round bye, and were set to face the highest-seeded team to emerge from the wildcard matchups.

As noted earlier, the Ravens and Texans will meet in Baltimore at 1 p.m. Eastern on Sunday. The game is set to be broadcast live on CBS. The other AFC team with a bye this week, the New England Patriots, will face either the Denver Broncos or Pittsburgh Steelers. Those two teams face off on Sunday in the final AFC wildcard matchup of the weekend.
