NFL Playoff Scores: Ravens Beat Texans, Giants Upset Packers

Here are the results of Sunday's NFL playoff matchups.

↵

First, the Baltimore Ravens beat the Houston Texans by a score 20-13, as Kris Wilson and Anquan Boldin caught touchdown passes from Joe Flacco. Arian Foster had 132 yards rushing with a touchdown for the Texans, and Andre Johnson caught eight passes for 111 yards. The Ravens' victory sets up a Ravens vs. Patriots matchup in the AFC Championship Game (3:00 on Sunday on CBS), which is pretty annoying for Steelers fans, most of whom won't feel like they can root for either team. A Broncos vs. Ravens championship game would have been worse, however, so at least that was avoided.

In the NFC, the New York Giants pulled off a shocking upset of the Green Bay Packers, 37-20, as Eli Manning went 21-of-33 with 330 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. Hakeem Nicks had 165 yards receiving and two touchdowns. The Packers lost three fumbles. That means the Giants will head to San Francisco to take on the Giants next Sunday in the NFC Championship Game (6:30 PM, FOX).
