Default Texans put Houston back on NFL map

Where to start?

It's taken me the better part of 18 hours to digest what 71,725 of us experienced at Reliant Stadium on Saturday.

Houston, you're NFL relevant once again.

What we saw on Saturday afternoon was indeed a rare event in Houston pro football history.

Since the merger in 1970, there's only been five NFL playoff games held in Houston.

Three were wins (Denver in the 1979 season, Seattle in OT (1987), and the Jets (1991), and two were losses (Steelers in 1989 and the Chiefs (1993).

So in other words it's been 20 years and 10 days since we've been able to celebrate a playoff victory in this town and celebrate we did.

Before the game you could feel the energy in the lots as the tailgaters cranked it up with food, drinks and beverages. Inside Reliant was off the hook. The stadium looked great and the "Go Texans" sign stunt on the lower level of the visitor sideline was a great touch.

The crowd was inside early and the atmosphere was thick with excitement and anticipation.

One of the funniest moments of the day was right before the 2:00 warning in the first half when Brisiel got pushed over a pile on a screen pass to Arian Foster. The official threw a flag thinking Brisiel committed a personal foul for a late hit after the play, but the official was overruled by another who saw Brisiel get pushed into the Cincinnati player.

After the officials picked up the flag, there were sighs of relief and Mrs. Brisiel turned around, put her hand on my wife's arm, looked her in the eye and said "Michael would never do anything like that."

To be continued.

Absolutely. The Texans will now get a Sunday Night Football game or two.
The Texans got snubbed so often because nobody takes you seriously until
you do something in the playoffs. That's just the way it is, and I'm damn glad
this team kicked down the door of the playoffs and beat the azz of who they found
on the other side.
