 CINCINNATI (AP) - Michael Johnson towers over blockers at 6-foot-7. Geno Atkins gets dwarfed at 6-foot-1. Domata Peko is gregarious. Carlos Dunlap tends to cut off interviews after a few questions.
The Bengals' defensive line is an eclectic mix of players from much different backgrounds with very different personalities and body types. Together, they formed one of the NFL's best units this season, one of the main reasons Cincinnati is in the playoffs again.
The Bengals set a club record with 51 sacks this season, 40 of them coming from the line. Atkins led all interior NFL linemen with 12 1/2, Johnson had 11 1/2, and Dunlap had six.
It's one of the Texans' biggest concerns heading into their wild card playoff game on Saturday in Houston.
