NFL Playoffs 2013: Bengals vs. Texans inactives

Thomas B. Shea

The Bengals and Texans have both announced their inactives for their Wild Card matchup on Saturday.

The Houston Texans host the Cincinnati Bengals at 4:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, which means both teams have released their lists of inactive players for their playoff tilt.

Houston will be sitting seven total players against Cincinnati, including three offensive lineman:

The Bengals have also deactivated seven, highlighted by four defensive players:

The Wild Card round is a bit of a surprise for the Texans, who seemed to have the top overall seed in the AFC playoffs locked up over a month ago. Three losses in four games down the stretch not only knocked Houston out of contention for home-field advantage, but a first-round bye as well. The team will try to rebound against a Bengals squad that has been hot down the stretch.

Cincinnati won their last three games to ensure a playoff berth and nearly grab the AFC North title away from the Baltimore Ravens. The three-game winning streak was part of seven wins in the Bengals' last eight games.
