With Saturday night's road win over the Colts, the Texans' solidified not just a spot in the playoffs, but also their place as one of this year's biggest surprises. Thanks in large part to the dynamic rookie head coach-QB combo of DeMeco Ryans and CJ Stroud – both of whom will be up for plenty of postseason awards – and also the Jaguars' late season collapse, the Texans will be hosting playoff football at NRG Stadium next weekend for the first time since 2019's overtime win against the Bills. Here are all the details you need to know.

What seed are the Houston Texans in the playoffs?

The Texans head into Wild Card weekend as the AFC's 4-seed.

Who will the Texans play in the playoffs?

The Texans will play the Cleveland Browns next week. They should be plenty familiar with one another: the two teams played each other less than a month ago, with the Browns (comfortably) winning, 36-22, on Christmas Eve. It should be noted, however, that Stroud was still dealing with symptoms from an earlier concussion and didn't play. Instead, Davis Mills started and threw for 149 yards and two touchdowns.
