JJ Watt's hands: Worth a number-one draft pick
A packed, loud and raucous Reliant Stadium crowd saw the highlight of rookie JJ Watt's life as the defensive lineman's incredible pick-six led the Texans to a 31-10 playoff win.

Equally helping Houston's cause was Bengals corner Pacman Jones, who was comically burned on a TJ Yates-to-Andre Johnson TD bomb.

Another star of the game: was the crowd, so noisy that it forced the Bengals into errors that helped limit the Bengals to a mere 10 points.

The whole game was terrific, even through a somewhat dull first half that saw both teams battle nerves and ineptitude on offense.

Now the Texans travel to Baltimore, another team that struggles on offense and tries to dominate on defense.

Watt's 29-yard TD return after an plucking a pass out of the air as he rushed Cincy QB Andy Dalton gave the Texans the lead for good in the first half.

After that, Johnson all but broke Pacman Jones's ankles with a double-move on a 40-yard TD pass from Yates; NBC reports Jones went to the sidelines and shoved the team's D-coordinator out of the way when he tried to talk to him.

Arian Foster, who took the Weird Haircut award away from Barwin Conwin Connor Barwin by shaving the Texans' logo into his `do, tiptoed and straight-armed his way to a 42-yard TD run that put the game away with five minutes to go.
