Yesterday's AFC wild card game saw the Houston Texans outlast the Cincinnati Bengals, 19-13, to advance to the divisional round next week to face the New England Patriots. Check CSC's game thread, and you'll see that HansDat nailed his pick on this one, and was pretty close with the score, too:
But both teams will stumble to the finish of this one, with Houston stumbling out with a win in a close howler for both teams, 20-17.

HansDat's Take: Just like the Texans and Bengals yesterday, this game features two teams going in opposite directions. The Ravens began the year 9-2 before dropping four out of five, while the Colts have gone 5-1 in their final six games, so who knows what to expect? What I see happening today is the veteran Raven playoff team dominating the emotionally-fueled and precocious Colts team just one year removed from a 2-14 season that led to the roster being blown up from top to bottom. Plus, I just know the Ray Lewis Retirement Tour will get more than one stop. Ravens 27, Colts 17.
