Both the Browns and Texans have never reached a Super Bowl, they look to change the course of their franchise’s history today. See below for everything you need to know about today’s Browns vs Texans game including storylines, kickoff time and more.

Cleveland Browns:

The Cleveland Browns are back in the playoffs for the second time in four seasons. Their last playoff appearance was in 2020—when Kevin Stefanski took over as head coach—and the Browns were eliminated by the Chiefs in the Divisional Round.

The Browns won 11 games during the regular season using five different starting quarterbacks. After QB Deshuan Watson underwent season-ending shoulder surgery in November, Cleveland turned to veteran QB Joe Flacco who they signed prior to Week 12. The 38-year-old went 4-1 in his 5 starts, throwing a total of 1,616 passing yards with 13 touchdown passes, and 9 turnovers to help the Browns reach the postseason.

Flacco spent the first 11 seasons of his career with the Ravens (2008-2018), a season with the Broncos (2019), and three seasons with the Jets (2020-2022). Today’s Wild Card game will mark his seventh trip to the playoffs as a starting quarterback. The veteran QB has won at least one playoff game in each of his previous appearances as a starter and is undefeated in the Wild Card round.

The Browns defeated the Texans, 36-22 in Week 16 of this season at NRG Stadium.

Houston Texans:

The Houston Texans made history this season by becoming the first team in the Super Bowl era to win their division title with a both a rookie quarterback (C.J. Stroud) and rookie head coach (DeMeco Ryans).

C.J. Stroud, who went second overall in the 2023 NFL Draft, went 9-6 in his 15 starts this season. The 22-year-old threw for 4,108 passing yards with 23 passing touchdowns and 5 interceptions this season. He also scored 3 rushing touchdowns.

While today’s Wild Card matchup will be the first NFL playoff game of his career, he is no stranger to performing under pressure. Stroud, who was a two-year starter at Ohio State, played in two bowl games. Last year, he threw for 348 yards with 4 passing touchdowns in the Buckeyes 42-41 semifinal loss against Georgia. The season before, he led his team to a Rose Bowl victory over Utah setting records with 573 passing yards and 6 passing touchdowns.

Houston’s last playoff appearance was in 2019, the year the took the AFC South title. The Texans were later eliminated in the Divisional Round by the Chiefs.
