Bengals vs. Texans, 2013 NFL Playoffs: Open thread

USA TODAY Sports

It's the game before the game. Chat with Acme Packing Company during the AFC Wild Card game between the Bengals and Texans, which functions as a bit of a Packers-Vikings undercard.

Obviously all playoff games count the same and the early Saturday game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Houston Texans stands alone as very watchable, but it feels like a bit of an undercard from our perspective. Sure, 'our perspective' is that of a Packers fan, but I don't think it's arrogant to assume there's a bit more national interest in the late game.

Anyway, Saturday's early game should be a pretty good one, and this is your open thread to talk about it. You might remember that the Bengals and Texans met last year in this round, with T.J. Yates doing enough to lead the Texans to victory. The Bengals are a bit better this season, and even though the Texans have their starting QB this time around, I think it's fair to say that they're not quite as strong as they were last year.

Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. CT from Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas. You can catch this game on NBC, and your announcers will be Dan Hicks and Mike Mayock. Chat away!
