Texans survive Bengals, capture AFC South

T.J. Yates' touchdown pass to Kevin Walter 19 victory over the Bengals and the first playoff berth in franchise history.

The Texans, who won their seventh consecutive game and improved to 10-3, clinched the AFC South title after the Titans lost to the Saints, falling to 7-6.

Yates made his second consecutive start and led Houston to another win, hitting Walter over the middle with a six-yard pass. The Texans got into scoring position thanks to a pass interference call on the Bengals with 12 seconds to play.
