Cincinnati Bengals at Houston Texans, 4:30 p.m., NBC: The Bengals are going to be a dangerous playoff team. They have a good offensive and defensive line and no major weaknesses. I like them a lot. The Texans have lost three in a row and T.J. Yates is banged up. They could be upset in the first round.
Detroit Lions at New Orleans Saints, 8 p.m., NBC: Looking forward to this matchup. They could score 100 combined points. Both teams score a lot and both give up a lot of yards. This should be a fun one to watch but the Saints are playing better than anyone in the NFL right now.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Denver Broncos, 4:30 p.m., CBS: Gotta roll with the Steelers here. The Broncos just need to hope they can keep it close and hold the ball with a chance to win. But I don't see that happening.
