Re: Houston Texans @ Baltimore Ravens. Noon. 9/22. CBS. **Official GameDay Thread**
They just showed Joe Flacco walking into the locker room on the NFL Network. He looks calm and poised. Exactly like a Super Bowl MVP fresh off an amazing playoffs last year should look like. Hopefully that changes when the game starts. We need to have a strong pass rush today. Their run game shouldn't be too much of a threat with Ray Rice out, even though Bernard Pierce is a decent backup but he's not exactly as good as Ben Tate is.
So if the Texans defense does well against Tate in practice they should have no trouble stopping Pierce. The Texans defense did a pretty good job rattling Flacco inside the pocket and getting right in his face the last two games the two teams played.
This game is going to come down to which defense plays the best, forces the most turnovers. I'm worried about Ryan Harris starting at left tackle but we'll see what happens.
