Repeat Defeat – Bengals Lose in Houston 19-13 For Second Straight Year

For the second straight season, the Bengals season ended in the Lone Star State.

A Texans defense that had been torched the past few weeks stuffed the Bengals, winning for a second straight year in the wild card round 19-13.

Arian Foster ran for 140 yards and a touchdown, and the stifling defensive beat up the Bengals offense for 60 minutes to move on for the second straight season.

The Texans will next play at New England Sunday, January 13th.

Foster became the first player in NFL history to have 100-yard games in each of his first three playoff games.

The Texans (13-4) had trouble finishing drives all day and mustered only three field goals in the first half. Houston struck first after the break, with Foster scoring the game’s only offensive touchdown on a 1-yard run in the third quarter to make it 16-7.

In his first playoff start, Matt Schaub had an interception returned for a touchdown by Leon Hall before halftime.

Johnathan Joseph had an interception and J.J. Watt had a sack as the Texans beat the Bengals (10-7) in the wild-card round for the second straight year. Cincinnati hasn’t won a playoff game since 1991, the league’s longest current streak.

    We needed to run more which would ave tamed the pass rush which was tough on Dalton. Having said that, being dominated much of the day we were one over throw from taking the lead with 2:00 to play…..
    .the defense is great.
