AFC Playoffs: Texans vs Chiefs Open Thread

Join us below for the official kickoff to the 2016 NFL playoffs!

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Texans won their division with a 9-7 record, which is why the Chiefs, who are 11-5, are having to travel down south and play on the road. Kansas City has the better record, but landed in 2nd place in their own division.

Each of these teams have faced their fair share of adversity during the 2015 season, but all records reset to 0-0 when the playoffs begin.  And it could easily be said that each one has plenty they are wanting to prove not only to their conference, but to the league as a whole.

Can the Texans be this year's 9-7 team that gets hot and makes a run for the crown? Or will the streaking Chiefs out-finesse Houston and get a playoff victory on the road?

We'll have another Open Thread for tonight's Bengals- Steelers contest, but for now, hang out here while you watch Game 1.

This is your AFC Wild Card Weekend, Chiefs vs Texans Open Thread... Have fun!
