The Baltimore Ravens’ opponent for next Sunday’s divisional round game was decided earlier Saturday when the Houston Texans upended the Cincinnati Bengals, 31-10, in their wild-card matchup at Houston.

Houston, champions of the AFC South, will visit M&T Bank Stadium next Sunday at 1 p.m., with the winner advancing to the AFC Championship the following week

The Ravens defeated the Texans in week six, 29-14, in Baltimore, and also defeated Houston last season in an overtime thriller in Texas.

Baltimore earned the right to host a divisional round playoff game for the first since the 2006 season by winning the AFC North and earning the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs.
