I thought this was a really good breakdown on one portion of the upcoming playoff game tomorrow. Some of you probably won't like it because it doesn't declare the Texans as losers by 50 but you know.

If there is one thing that Iím certain of, itís that since roughly week seven of the 2012 season, the Bengals' run defense has been stiffer than MDC in a room full of subservient Allison Brie clones. Itís just plain impossible to go anywhere, especially if your offense happens to run a power scheme. Zones, traps, and whams tend to have more success, but in my observation, for every twelve yard run there is an equally devastating five yard loss. Part (and by part, I mean most) of that defensive success in the run game has come from the stellar play of Geno Atkins, Domata Peko, and Vontaze Burfict.

I like the sub-heading:

Last one to five sacks is a rotten egg! Previewing Texans-Bengals.

Honestly this is probably the best defensive matchup we will see in the playoffs unless Seattle and SF square off.
