Re: Texans Game Week -- at Baltimore Ravens
It's been mentioned, that the Ravens are struggling. Their loss to the Broncos & their struggle against the Browns are being used as evidence. But how much does that really tell us?
Most people believe the Broncos are playing better than any other team in the AFC..... some believe they're the best team in the league right now. A loss to Denver is not necessarily a bad thing.
The Browns... the lowly Browns, are a divisional opponent to the Ravens, much like the Titans are to us. Cleveland had a better defense than Tennessee in 2012 (slightly) & they've made some additions to that side of the ball as well. Their biggest problem last season was their offense... & Jake locker threw for less than 150 yards on Sunday.
All I'm saying is we probably shouldn't infer too much from the Ravens performance so far. Flacco has shown a knack for stepping up when he needs to & this week might be more than just a "nice to win" game. This is their home opener, they're going to induct Ray Lewis into their Ring of Honor..... & we don't do well against "emotional" teams.
No doom & gloom here, I expect a win in Baltimore, but it's going to look ugly.
