Vikings, like Texans, work OT to advance in NFL playoffs

By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer
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 Foxborough, gets a trip to Baltimore (14-2) next Saturday night. Seattle (12-5) will be at Green Bay next Sunday because Minnesota’s victory meant it would head to top-seeded San Francisco next Saturday.
