NFL playoffs scores: Chiefs blank Texans, Bengals bungle game in loss to Steelers

Check out scores and commentary

The AFC wild card games are done. The Kansas City Chiefs won their 11th straight game in a 30-0 blowout win over the Houston Texans, as Brian Hoyer threw four interceptions. In the night cap, the Cincinnati Bengals, behind a big throw by A.J. McCarron, looked like they were going to get their first playoff win in forever, but instead Vontaze Burfict and Adam Jones committed penalties, giving the Steelers 30 yards and a 35-yard field goal attempt. It was good and the Steelers got the 18-16 win.
