The home teams won both games today as Wildcard weekend began, and both in convincing fashion.
In the early game, the Texans ousted the Bengals 31-10, led by Arian Foster’s 153 yards rushing. The Texans will be in Baltimore next Sunday at 1 PM to face the Ravens.
Over 1,000 yards of offense were posted in the late game, and the Lions led 14-10 at halftime, but a huge second half by Drew Brees led to a 45-28 victory for the Saints. The Saints put up 35 points in the second half, and Drew Brees threw for 466 yards and 3 TDs to send his Saints to San Fransisco next Saturday at 4 PM to face the Forty Niners.
That means the winner of the Giants vs. Falcons will head to Green Bay, and the winner of Pittsburgh vs. Denver will face the Patriots.
