LOS ANGELES, September 5, 2012 — The Cincinnati Bengals v Houston Texans (4.5) play this afternoon at 4:30pm EST and we will be live chatting the game (Our prediction — Texans cover). Join us for the game and add your analysis to the game, as well as for tonight’s competition Vikings v Green Bay. 


These two teams will both be quickly dispatched from the playoffs as better teams take them out with relative ease. The Bengals have never won a playoff game under Marvin Lewis. The Texans blew an 11-1 start to throw away the top seed and end up with an extra game. Yet the Texans won last year at home with TJ Yates, and this year Matt Schaub is healthy.

Michelin Man Wade Phillips will have enough defensive surprises to fool the talented but young and inexperienced Bengals offense. Houston will dispatch Cincinnati before calling it a season themselves.

If the Bengals win, they move on to the Denver Broncos next week. If the Texans win, then they are at the New England Patriots next week.


Minnesota Vikings play against the Green Bay Packers for the Saturday night game. Play and the Communities Live Chat both begin at 8pm EST.  The Prediction: Packers win but fail to cover.


Despite Minnesota beating Green Bay last week to make the playoffs and cost Green Bay a 1st round bye, this week the Packers are at home. The Packers are on a mission after collapsing at home last year after a 15-1 season. Adrian Peterson is a feel-good story, but if the Vikings fall behind early he will be a non-factor.

Aaron Rodgers at home is a much safer bet than Christian Ponder on the road. Green Bay should win without much difficulty. 

The winner of this game will play either the Atlanta Falcons or San Francisco 49ers depending on results from the other NFC Wildcard game.
