Just to throw some numbers at this toolbag's head....
The rookie quarterback T.J. Yates has played better than he has been given credit for. His Adjusted Yards Per Attempt (which accounts for sacks and interceptions) is higher than that of his counterpart Joe Flacco this season. Houstonís defense doesnít get the press that Baltimoreís does, but itís one of the very best. This season, the Texans have allowed 5.2 Yards per Attempt compared with the Ravensí 5.4. I expect a much closer game than most other analysts have been predicting. Using Yatesís numbers only, Baltimore has the edge 52/48.
