Texans To Host Bengals In First Round Saturday At Reliant Stadium

To kick off the NFL’s postseason slate, the Cincinnati Bengals will travel to Reliant Stadium on Saturday afternoon to take on the Houston Texans in a game featuring two teams headed in the opposite direction.

Instead, Cincinnati is the sixth seed and draws, quite possibly, a more favorable matchup in the Texans—who enter the playoffs losers of three of their final four games, falling out of the AFC's top spot they held for much of the season.
On paper, these two teams are quite comparable. However, the NFL has shown itself to be a league that thrives on momentum.

The NFL has also taught us that anything is possible.
Here are five bold predictions for Saturday's Bengals-Texans tilt.

Shane King: NFL Playoffs Game Preview: Cincinnati Bengals vs. Houston Texans

The Bengals have reached the playoffs for the fourth time under Marvin Lewis and in consecutive seasons for the first time in 30 years. While the Texans come in struggling (losers of two straight), they have history on their side. Houston has won four straight games against the Bengals and is yet to be beaten by an AFC team in Reliant Stadium this year. The Bengals are on a roll, having won seven of their last eight games to close out the regular season.

Stanford Wins Rose Bowl

The Thinkering - Rose Bowl

Stanford linebacker Shayne Skov positioned himself properly as the game wound down. He wanted to make certain his head coach, David Shaw, would receive the proper soaking from the proper Gatorade cooler.
And so, as the noise built over the final seconds to punctuate Stanford's first victory here in Pasadena since New Year's Day of 1972, Skov hemmed in Shaw on the sideline. And his teammates brought the soaking.
"I just wanted to make sure he didn't get away," Skov said.
He didn't. And neither did Stanford's 20-14 victory over Wisconsin here Wednesday, in a muscle-against-muscle, slam-against-slam physical battle. This was something beyond a regular satisfying win, however. The Cardinal has won many games over the past four years. They have won other bowl games.
But the Rose Bowl is different.

Royce White Has Been Found: Headed to The D-League

The Thinkering/Royce White

 

Houston Rockets rookie forward Royce White issued a statement through his publicist declining his assignment by the Rockets to the NBA Development League.

"I have chosen to not play, because the doctors and I believe it to be unsafe for unqualified Rockets front office personnel to make medical decisions, as they are not mental health professionals," White said in his statement.
