The Houston Texans beat the Cincinnati Bengals in Saturday's AFC Wild Card game which means they're moving onto the Divisional round of the playoffs to face the Baltimore Ravens. The game will take place and Baltimore will be favored to win.

The teams will meet at 1:00 p.m. next Sunday but let's make an early prediction.

I gotta roll with the Ravens in this one. They're a Super Bowl-caliber team and I think the Texans are a step behind them. The Ravens defense is, as usual, elite and the offense is improving as well. They have a lot of weapons in place that will make them dangerous. I think the Ravens defense ultimately shuts down Arian Foster and the Texans turn into one-dimensional team.

The Ravens already beat the Texans once this year, 29-14. And that was with their starting quarterback, Matt Schaub.

The Ravens haven't lost at home this year and I don't think that starts now. Joe Flacco keeps winning playoff games and the Ravens advance to the AFC Championship game.
