BALTIMORE, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Joe Flacco hurled a pair of TD passes and Baltimore's defense forced four turnovers Sunday in the Ravens' 20-13 AFC divisional playoff win over Houston.

Flacco passed to Kris Wilson for a 1-yard score early the first quarter to put the Ravens ahead to stay and made it 17-3 later in the initial frame on a 10-yarder to Anquan Boldin.

Flacco finished 14-of-27 through the air for 176 yards and no interceptions and Billy Cundiff booted a pair of field goals as Baltimore won a home playoff game for the first time since 2000 and advanced to next week's AFC Championship Game, where they will take on the New England Patriots.

The Ravens picked off three T.J. Yates passes and recovered a fumble while holding the Texans to 184 passing yards.

Yates completed 17-of-35 passes and Arian Foster amassed 132 rushing yards and a score on 27 carries for Houston, which bested Cincinnati last week to reach the first divisional playoff game in franchise history.
