Houston Texans to host Buffalo Bills at home for first round of playoffs

HOUSTON, Texas -- The Houston Texans lost to the Tennessee Titans 35-14 in the last game of the regular season.

The Texans will host a Wild Card Round game against the Buffalo Bills on Saturday, Jan. 4 at 3:35 p.m. for the first round of the playoffs. The game will air on ESPN and ABC.

If you want to see the game in person, tickets may set you back, depending on your budget.

On Ticketmaster, seats in the 600 level start around $90 each. But if you want to sit closer, you can upgrade to club level for $500.

Front row tickets are selling for $800 each, but you have to buy a pair, so you'd really be paying $1600.

As for the game, odds makers like the Texans, although the team is only a three point favorite to win.

The game could also mark the return of J.J. Watt, who thought he was done for the year after a pectoral injury in October.

"It's a great testament to his willpower and how much he loves this game and his teammates as well. He is going to be juiced up, and we are going to be juiced up," said Texans linebacker Whitney Mercilus.

With the AFC South clinched, the Texans started quarterback AJ McCarron in Sunday's game against the Titans with Deshaun Watson serving as the backup.

Along with the quarterback change, wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins also didn't play.
The Texans won the AFC South last week with their win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They are slotted into the No. 4 seed after the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Los Angeles Chargers earlier Sunday.

Houston had already ruled out wide receiver Will Fuller V for Sunday because of a groin injury.
