HOUSTON -- The Houston Texans will be the next opponent for the reigning AFC champion New England Patriots. Houston won its wild-card game Saturday over the Cincinnati Bengals, 19-13, at Reliant Stadium.

The Patriots will host Houston in a divisional-round matchup on Jan. 13. This is a rematch of a lopsided game in Week 14 when New England beat Houston, 42-14, at Gillette Stadium.

Home-field advantage could be a factor again next week. The Texans have lost their last two road games.
