Re: Do Texans fans honestly think they're going to win?
Anyone who says the Texans CANT win this is as big an idiot as someone saying the Texans WILL win this.
This is a playoff game. Neither of us are in the playoffs on a technicality. We are talking about two really good teams going head to head.
The Ravens have a superb defense that specializes in stopping the run (our greatest strength). They are playing at home, after a bye, and beat us once this year already. It is very obvious to anyone with half a brain that the Ravens SHOULD be favored to win this game.
But it should also be obvious that the Texans are not a pushover team that is going to hand you a win. We are a good team.. and if you make any mistakes we will capitalize on them (in theory). You better bring your A game cause we will bring ours.
People here pick the Texans to win because they want the Texans to win and, as fans, they see all the ways in which the Texans CAN win this game. And make no mistake about it.. this is an incredibly WINNABLE game for the Texans. Its just MORE winnable for the Ravens.
Two good teams will play on Sunday. Saying that one will clearly win is a mistake.
