Ravens are getting all the attention, hype, and are being heavily picked to win.
They're about to face a young, hungry team that absolutely THRIVES on emotion. A team that probably feels like they are being completely overlooked, and maybe even disrespected nationally.
Oh, make no mistake, this isn't going to be the same team that played in Baltimore earlier this year.
THAT Texans team probably didn't really expect to win that game, deep down inside.
THIS Texans team goes onto this game with no doubt whatsoever that they are capable of beating the Ravens.
Am I predicting a win? Probably wouldn't go so far as to predicit the win, but I think the Texans will play even better than they did last time around.
Why is it only "The Texans are a much different team than the week 6 team." The result of week 6 doesn't matter. It's week 6!!!!! But somehow, the Ravens didn't get better since week 6? hmmm
You say you're playing the best team football you've ever seen.....you lost 3 out of your last 4 games and 3 out of 4 were at home.
