When the schedule was released way back in April, I, along with quite a few others, circled this game on the schedule as a tough one for the Ravens. That was assuming good health for Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Ed Reed and Haloti Ngata among others. Now, this game could be a blowout.
Fortunately for the Ravens, I don’t think they will get blown out. Joe Flacco and the offense play up to their capabilities when they face an opponent that’s presumably playoff bound.
Houston, on the other hand, is coming off of a blowout loss to the Packers and they will want to prove something and have the top record in the AFC. Their defense will also be more accustomed to playing without Brian Cushing.
The Texans win this one 27-21.
I won’t be covering the game this week as I am on vacation until the bye week. Thanks for reading!
