Sunday’s contest between the Houston Texans and Baltimore Ravens was billed as a likely AFC Championship Game preview. If that is so, fans in Houston must be dancing today. From about the eight minute mark in the first quarter, this one was all Texans as they cruised to a thirty point thrashing of the Ravens; their first win over Baltimore in franchise history.
A week after receiving a thrashing of their own at the hands of Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, Houston bounced back the way that good teams do by making a statement against their biggest threat in the AFC, as far as record goes. You could sense a sigh of relief from those in Houston who were concerned after the team suffered their first loss and had some pundits thinking they were exposed on national television.
For the Ravens, their Jekyll and Hyde act continued that see them remain a force at home and horribly mediocre on the road. But no team seems to be having worse luck with the injury bug right now, regardless of getti...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
So far this weekend, every game in the NFL has been decided by a touchdown or less, with just one exception. The Texans bounced back from an embarrassing loss to the Packers by thoroughly embarrassing someone else. The Texans beat the Ravens earlier this afternoon an astounding 43-13. The key to the beat down was the Texans' ability to shut down the Ravens offense in a dominating...
The Houston Texans dominated the Baltimore Ravens in just about every category Sunday. That included the trash talk. J.J. Watt's on-field taunts were caught by a microphone Sunday as the Texans dismantled the Ravens 43-13, and the 6-foot-5, 295-pound Watt let 5-foot-8 running back Ray Rice know what he thought of him. "I've eaten burritos bigger than you...
Ben Tate has a strained hamstring, an injury picked up in Sunday's statement win over the Baltimore Ravens.
The Texans can probably be excused for having one eye on New Orleans in February and should the road to the Super Bowl in the AFC not go through Houston, then it's safe to assume that something calamitous would have taken place between now and Week 17.
The Houston Texans proved on Sunday afternoon that they are indeed the team to beat in the AFC. But even more so, with a 43-13 rout of the Ravens, the Texans firmly asserted themselves as the best team in the NFL.
Okay, so the Atlanta Falcons are still undefeated and playing about as well as any team in football. But even a perfect record can't strip the Texans of their title...
HOUSTON (AP) -- The Texans needed a win over Baltimore to enter their bye with the AFC's best record.
The lopsided victory gave them that, and clearly separated them from the second-place Ravens and the rest of the conference.
Still, the Texans (6-1) know they can't be too impressed with what they've accomplished so far.
"You can't look at the big picture...

It looks like the Houston Texans' defense will be just fine without Brian Cushing.

The Houston Texans hosted the Baltimore Ravens in a game that had immediate and future implications on the seating in the AFC. In this game, both teams were playing for the top seed in the AFC. The Texans had a little bit extra to play for as they were bulldozed the previous week by the Packers and the Texans needed a good showing. The Texans also needed to win this game after coming...
