The Houston Texans continue to fight for a spot in the playoffs, when they continue their mission on Saturday against the Bengals.
The Texans currently sit as one of the 4 Wild Card participants, but have no room for error.
The Bengals season has seen the bottom fall out after their loss to the Steelers on Sunday afternoon.
Cincinnati led Pittsburgh by as much as 14 before the Steelers mounted a furious comeback, ultimately ending the Bengals chances at the playoffs.
There has also been some rumblings whether or not Cincinnati would retain head coach Marvin Lewis. However, that remains to be seen.
Here on Saturday, the Bengals have to figure things out offensively.
Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton finished with just 157 yards through the air and had a crucial interception in the 4th quarter.
Cincinnati is just 2-5 SU and 2-5 ATS on the road this season.
The Houston Texans continue to hang on to a spot in the postseason, but things got a little odd on Sunday.
After signing Brock Osweiler to a huge deal this past offseason, the Texans benched him Sunday after serious signs of struggling.
Osweiler gave way to QB Tom Savage who made quite the name for himself.
Savage went 23 of 36 from the field with 260 yards. He’ll certainly get the nod here on Saturday night after his performance, as it’ll be his job to lead the Texans into the playoffs.
Look for them to lean on their defense, which allowed just 150 yards and 9 first downs to the Jaguars last week.
Houston enters play on 6-1 SU at home and 4-2-1 ATS in that stretch.
