The Cincinnati Bengals will head to Houston to do battle against the Texans this Saturday.

The Cincinnati Bengals finished their season with a record of 10-6, finishing in second place in the tough AFC North division.

The Houston Texans, on the other hand, finished the season with a record of 12-4, which was good enough to finish at the top of the AFC South.

The Texans finished the season on shaky legs, losing their last two games of the season, while the Bengals finished their season on a three game winning streak.

At one point in the season, the Texans were the favorites to win the Super Bowl in February. Now, after their recent struggles, the Texans are down on the list of Super Bowl favorites behind the likes of the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos. As a matter of fact, even the Seattle Seahawks have better odds of winning the Super Bowl than the Houston Texans as of this moment.
