At the turn of the century, the 2000 NFL playoffs began with the Jacksonville Jaguars as the AFC’s top seed. Buffalo, after a decade filled with four Super Bowl appearances, made the field as a wild card team.
The Cincinnati Bengals and Houston Texans will face off in the postseason for the second straight season when they get together on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. ET on NBC. The Bengals (10-6) enter this game having won three in a row and seven of their last eight, while the AFC South champion Texans (12-4), stumbled late, dropping three of their last four games. Houston defeated Cincinnati 31-10 in last season’s Wild Card round, earning the Texans their first playoff victory in franchise history.
