Leon Hall pick-six gives Bengals the lead in Houston

Wild Card Playoffs - Cincinnati Bengals v Houston Texans Getty Images

Everything was going smoothly for the Texans in today’s wild-card playoff game against the Bengals. And then one play changed all that.

Texans quarterback Matt Schaub made a bad decision with a throw to fullback James Casey, Bengals cornerback Leon Hall jumped the route, and Hall intercepted the pass and raced 21 yards to the end zone for a touchdown. Cincinnati went up 7-6.

Prior to that, the Texans had been in control: Houston had two long drives that ended in field goals, and Cincinnati had been able to do nothing much offensively.

But if Schaub is going to be giving touchdowns away like he did on the bad pass that Hall picked off, this could be an ugly day in Houston.

    The only thing worse than that throw was the decision to throw it, brutal.

    Battle of two crappy quarterbacks.

    Matt Schaub is slowly turning into Tony Romo. SMH.

    Schaub isn’t very good but compared to Andy Dalton, he’s amazing.

    Just hand the ball to Foster!!!

    Dalton is what he is, but Schaub is so vastly overrated and getting further exposed. As is Foster. Take him out of that zone blocking scheme and he’s a 3.2 ypc guy. So many guys have been signed right off the streets to come in and run behind stretch plays and excelled, but did nothing elsewhere in a standard offense.

    Schaub is pulling a Roethlisberger.

    Boring game. Can’t wait for the Seattle vs. Washington game tomorrow.

    With that kind of eye for personnel, I cannot believe you are not on the short list of GM candidates. Please give us more brilliant player insight!

    Hey Bengals fans, quit pointing fingers at other teams. YOU need a QB in the draft. Who dey or whatever?

    Romo is a much better QB than Schaub

    Honestly, I put half the blame on the target who made a poo effort to catch it or break up the INT.

    Pulling a Roethlisberger, would require 2 Super Bowl wins in 3 appearances

    The Steeler defense has ALWAYS carried Roethlisberger on its back. NEVER the other way around.

    This year even with the number one defense in the entire NFL Roethlisberger couldn’t get the Steelers into the playoffs. That tells you everything you need to know about how good Roethlisberger is.

    Roethlisberger COULD NOT get a win at home in a game of playoff like win or go home importance when the Steeler defense held the Bengals to six points. Even Schaub isn’t that pathetic.
