Working overtime paid off for Minnesota and Houston this weekend. One day after the Texans rallied from a 16-0 deficit to beat Buffalo 22-19 in an AFC wild-card game, the Vikings stunned New Orleans 26-20. The Texans (11-6) will travel to Kansas City (12-4) next Sunday in the divisional round. Tennessee (10-7), which ended New England's run of three straight Super Bowl appearances with its victory Saturday at Foxboro, gets a trip to Baltimore (14-2) next Saturday night. Seattle (11-5) visited Philadelphia (9-7) and the winner will be at Green Bay next Sunday  because Minnesota's victory meant it would head to top-seeded San Francisco next Saturday.
