Bengals, Texans enter playoffs coming off losses

Inside the matchup:

Fast facts:

» To the last point, the Bengals have run for more than 100 yards as a team in nine straight games. For the most part, the Cedric Benson-Bernard Scott tandem has worked this season.

» Houston lost Sunday due to a bad snap, and has nine giveaways in its last four games, including a minus-five turnover ratio. Gary Kubiak's group can't afford turnovers in what should be the weekend's tightest contest.

» The biggest question mark is if the Bengals can beat a good team. Losses versus the 49ers, Ravens (twice), Steelers (twice), and Texans indicate they can't.
