So you’d expect some mixed emotions from the Texans players as the Ravens (9-5) try to build on their playoff drive this Sunday at Houston (7-7). But all-purpose defensive end J.J.

Baltimore Ravens at Houston Texans: 2014 Week 16 NFL Pick

Baltimore Ravens (9-5) at Houston Texans (7-7) This line was Houston -1 last week and now it’s Baltimore -6 in Houston. That’s a massive line movement, as it’s moved a full touchdown to compensate for Ryan Fitzpatrick’s injury. That’s a massive overreaction. Fitzpatrick is decent, but the Texans’ offense ranks just 19th in the NFL in rate of moving the chains. Meanwhile...

Mailbag: What are reasonable expectations of Case Keenum?

Case Keenum is back, what are the reasonable expectations from him if he does start against the Ravens? Mike in Houston I think there is a 75% chance of Case Keenum starting, not because O’Brien likes him or has faith in him.
