NFL: Houston 31, Cincinnati 10

Jan. 7, 2012 at 8:21 PM   |   Comments

HOUSTON, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Arian Foster amassed 153 yards and scored twice Saturday, propelling Houston past Cincinnati 31-10 in the Texans' first-ever playoff game.

Foster scored on an 8-yard run in the first period and capped the game's scoring with a tackle-shedding, 42-yard scoring scamper in the fourth as the Texans advanced in the first post-season appearance in franchise history.

T.J. Yates completed 11-of-20 passes for 159 yards and a TD toss to Andre Johnson in the third quarter that put Houston ahead 24-10.

J.J. Watt returned an interception 29 yards for a score just before the intermission for the Texans, who snapped a three-game losing streak and now move on to face Baltimore in next week's AFC semifinals.

Andy Dalton went 27-of-42 through the air for 257 yards but didn't throw a touchdown and was picked off three times for Cincinnati.

The Bengals failed in their bid to log their first playoff win since 1991.
