Owen Daniels caught nine passes for 91 yards in the Texans' Wild Card Round win over the Bengals.

Daniels turned Rey Maualuga around for a 17-yard pickup on Houston's second possession, but dropped a third-and-two pass plays later to kill the drive. Daniels came back on the next series to draw a pass interference flag on Vontaze Burfict. Daniels got shaken up on a third-quarter red-zone play with an apparent stinger, but returned on Houston's next drive and was the Texans' most consistent pass option throughout the game. With a healthy Daniels, Houston's passing attack is much sharper and efficient. He led the team with 11 targets Saturday and appears back to 100 percent.
