Join Sun writers and editors to discuss the Ravens upcoming game against Houston at 1:30 Sunday in Baltimore. Matt Vensel of Sports Blitz will answer questions you have on the Texans, who the Ravens beat, 29-14, way back when Houston's starting QB, Matt Schaub, was still healthy. But now rookie T.J.

The AFC North champion Ravens, meanwhile, are healthy and rested after a bye in the first round.
