Open Thread: Playoff Games 1/5/2013

Bob Levey

Chat along while watching today's playoff games between the Texans and Bengals, and Packers and Vikings.

The playoffs are finally here! Sure, the San Diego Chargers might not be involved, but nothing quite carries your excitement level for an entire day like back-to-back NFL playoff games.

Today's first game is in Houston, where the Texans will take on the Cincinnati Bengals. The Texans are probably the better team, but they've been sliding lately while the Bengals have been hot. Can Houston turn it around?

The second game will be in Green Bay, where the Minnesota Vikings will be playing the "little brother" role to the Packers. The consensus is that the Packers are the better team and will dominate this game, which leaves the Vikings with an awful lot to prove.
