HOUSTON -- J.J. Watt swatted away passes, Arian Foster ran away from tacklers and the Houston Texans did just enough to knock Cincinnati out of the playoffs for the second straight year. Matt Schaub made his first postseason start a successful one when Foster's 1 - yard touchdown in the third quarter helped the Texans to a 19 - 13 AFC wild - card win over the Bengals on Saturday.
The Texans, 13 - 4, move on to the second round on January 13 th when they visit the New England Patriots, who beat them 42 - 14 in Week 14. This time they're 9 1/2-point underdogs.
Shayne Graham kicked four field goals for the Texans, while Foster finished with 140 yards and became the first NFL player to have 100 - yard games in each of his first three playoff games.
