HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) -- One of the league's interception leaders is playing against the Texans in the AFC wild card game.

The Texans already faced another in Stephon Gilmore, and they came out on the winning side of that matchup against the New England Patriots.

This time, it's Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White, who Texans head coach Bill O'Brien on Monday called "one of the best corners we'll play against."

“He can press, he can play off, very physical, very smart. Great player for them," O'Brien said.

In addition to his league-leading six interceptions (Gilmore and Vikings defensive back Anthony Harris also finished the season with six), White also forced a pair of fumbles this season. 

White had two interceptions and a forced fumble in the Bills' Week 3 win against the Cincinnati Bengals; one interception and a forced fumble in Week 7 against the Miami Dolphins; an interception in Week 12 against the Denver Broncos; and another pair of interceptions in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

Meanwhile, Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson threw 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Five of those interceptions came in the last three games in which he played.

Watson's development has been key to the Texans' success the past two seasons. He spoke last week about learning from mistakes and improving in all areas.

O'Brien said Monday Watson's experience should help in this playoff run.

"I think any time you have the amount of experience that he has at this point, it’s better than let’s just say a year ago," O'Brien said. "He has a lot more experience at running our offense, seeing defenses, recognizing things, a lot more experience playing with the guys here that he’s playing with right now. I think experience always helps."
