The Houston Texans host the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card round of the 2020 NFL playoffs. The game is scheduled for Saturday, January 4th, with kickoff set for 4:35 p.m. ET. The game will air on ESPN and will be simulcast on ABC. The Divisional round matchup for the winner will be determined based on who wins the Patriots-Titans wild card game.
The Texans finished the regular season 10-6, clinching the AFC South. They had a shot at the No. 3 seed coming into Week 17, but once the Chiefs won, they lost that chance and settled in at No. 4. They used the season finale as a mini-bye, resting quite a few notable starters, including DeShaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins, and Laremy Tunsil.
The Bills finished the regular season 10-6 and clinched the AFC’s top wild card berth. They clinched a playoff berth in Week 15 and were locked into the No. 5 seed by the time Week 15 rolled around. Josh Allen started the team’s final regular season game, but sat soon after along with a host of other starters.
Houston opened as a field goal favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, with the point total set at 41.5. The Texans finished the regular season 7-8-1 against the spread and went over the point total seven times. The Bills finished the regular season 9-6-1 ATS and went over the point total four times.
