At first, it looked like the Ravens would get out of their victory over the Houston Texans unscathed. Now, that doesn't seem to be the case.
According to this tweet from Aaron Wilson, linebacker Dannell Ellerbe will be out a few weeks with hamstring and groin injuries.

BALTIMORE — A couple of long passes, Billy Cundiff's right leg and an efficient performance by the Baltimore defense was enough to give the Ravens another double-digit win at home. Joe Flacco threw for 305 yards and ran for a score, Cundiff kicked five field goals, and Baltimore pulled away to ...

Here are my observations from yesterday's game between Baltimore and Houston, in no particular order:This is not last year's teamThe 2011 Baltimore Ravens actually know how to finish out a game.

The score was tighter this time, with the Texans trailing by one score for much of the second half, but it never really felt like the game was in jeopardy.

Joe Flacco threw for 305 yards and ran for a score, Billy Cundiff kicked five field goals, and the Baltimore Ravens pulled away to a 29-14 victory over the short-handed Houston Texans on Sunday. The Ravens (4-1) did just enough on defense to earn their third straight win. Baltimore held Houston scoreless over the final 21 minutes and limited standout running back Arian Foster to...
Locked in a tight game against a wounded opponent, the Baltimore Ravens cranked up the defense and supplemented their rejuvenated running attack with a couple of long passes to pull away to another double-digit home win.
The Ravens have an extra day this week because they play on Monday night against the Jaguars in Jacksonville. I assume by now that Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio has watched the Ravens game against the Texans, and suspect he will run a lot of delayed blitzes against the Ravens on Monday night. The Texans had success with Sunday, especially in the first half, and I was surprised that...
Kicker has made 10 straight since missing two in a row vs. St. LouisSince missing his only two field goals of the season in the Ravens’ 37-7 rout of the St. Louis Rams on Sept. 25, kicker Billy Cundiff has been perfect, converting all 10 attempts since then.
