The 12 teams in the NFL playoffs have a combined 28 players who grew up playing high school football in the Houston area.


The Saints, Seahawks and Bills have the biggest local representation with each team having three players who contribute regularly on their active roster.

Probably the most impactful Houston player on any playoff roster is Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter. The Morton Ranch graduate turned in his second straight 14.5-sack season and will try to disrupt Drew Brees and the Saints offense when he meets them Sunday in New Orleans.
