Team Score In Parentheses
Bengals (10) @ Texans (31)
Bengals QB Andy Dalton had a rough playoff debut in his team’s loss against the AFC South Champions. The Texans intercepted Dalton’s throws multiple times, including an insane grab by DL JJ Watt. The Texans ran the ball exceptionally, also. RB Arian Foster had over 100 yards for the day. Texans WR Andre Johnson has now got passed the injury bug and put on a show, also.

The Saints offense clicked, and their defense held the explosive Lions to only 25 points. Also, the Saints rushing attack grounded and pounded, which was the deciding factor in this game.
Next week: Saints @ 49ers
Falcons (2) @ Giants (24)
The Atlanta Falcons managed only a measly two points as the G-Men defense stopped them on crucial plays.

The Giants defense was clearly the reason why the Giants won this game, even though their offense put up big points.
Next week: Giants @ Packers
Steelers (23) @ Broncos (29) Final/Overtime
The Steelers were going to breeze past the struggling Bronco team who were red hot, but dropped three straight. However, the Broncos made the most of their opportunity, and Tim Tebow had an admirable game—he threw for over 300 yards, including an 80-yard TD pass to WR Demaryius Thomas in Overtime that won the ballgame. The Broncos’s victory gave them momentum heading into their Divisional Round battle with…
