The Bengals will beat the Texans on Saturday, and here’s why.
Matt Schaub’s has been playing worse and worse for several consecutive weeks. It’s bad to have a cold quarterback as you enter the playoffs. Also, it’s tough for the Texans to get up for a wild card game when they have been planning on having a bye week for so long. I like the Texans’ running game, and Andre Johnson is an excellent wide out, but Schaub is the key. Bengals’ defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer will have an answer for the Texans’ zone run schemes and the bootleg passes.
Houston’s defense is pretty tough, but New England exposed their secondary. If Andy Dalton gets the time, A.J. Green will have a big game.
