Unexpected seasons from both the Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans have landed them in the playoffs against each other in the wild-card round.

The Browns, after dealing with mediocre play and then a season-ending injury to Deshaun Watson, found unlikely success after the arrival of Joe Flacco. Under a revitalized Flacco, who is 38, the Browns offense began to click. They won four of their last five games, and seven of their last ten.

On the other side of the coin is 22-year-old rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud and the Texans. The Texans got off to a middling 3-3 start, but Stroud found his footing after their Week 7 bye and they went 7-4 the rest of the way behind his remarkable rookie season.

This is Flacco’s 16th career playoff game. It’s the first for Stroud.Will experience win out, or will youth defeat age? Follow along as Yahoo Sports provides the latest news, scores and highlights from Saturday’s Wild Card game.
