NFL Playoff Schedule 2012: Texans Vs. Ravens In Divisional Round, Steelers Will Face Patriots If Victorious

While the Pittsburgh Steelers prepare to face the Denver Broncos Sunday in the final game of the 2012 NFL Wild Card Weekend, the Houston Texans are packing their bags for Baltimore and the Divisional Round of this year's playoffs courtesy of their win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Texans manhandled the Bengals on Saturday, behind the legs of Arian Foster and an opportunistic defense. Foster gained 153 yards on 24 carries, scoring twice, and defensive end J.J. Watt made an acrobatic interception that he then returned 29 yards for a touchdown in Houston's beatdown of Cincinnati.

With the win, Houston moves on to face the No. 2 seed in the AFC, the Baltimore Ravens, next weekend. The game will be played at 1:00 PM ET next Sunday, January 15.

With that matchup set, the winner of Sunday's Steelers versus Broncos contest will now travel to New England next weekend to face the AFC's No. 1 seed Patriots.
