Default Texans VS Ravens. Lets Predict :)

Ok ok so last week was a big big let down. Hopefully our boys can turn it around and repay the ravens for last seasons play off loss.

Texans 27

Ravens 16

I predict we will complain unless we win by 40 points, trying to push the score even higher inside the 2 minute warning.

No **** i love it how we have a 14 point lead with 2 full quarters left and we WILL NOT chunk it down the field, but the packers with a 17 point lead are still throwing trying to score, damn i wish Kubiak would humiliate teams like the packers humiliated us.

Had us down as 9-7 (still division winners though) prior to regular season. This is one that I had marked as an L, so...

Texans 27
Ravens 31

Would love to be wrong

A win would go a very long way heading into the bye. But until Barwin shows up, I have little faith in our D at the moment.

Ravens 31
Texans 27


I hope I am wrong.

I won't predict.

The Texans laid a huge turd, they have a bye week right after the Ravens game, which means this team is capable of mailing it in early and rationalizing that they've got a nice 5-2 record to enjoy over our divisional rivals.

This team has to bounce back BIG TIME before I know which team we've got from week to week. Right now, they're a mess in many areas.

Boooooooooo!!!!

Yes, they appear to be a "mess in many areas" and they sure did lay one against Green Bay and I'll not judge anyone for being uncertain about how they feel of the Texan's chances this coming weekend. But I seriously doubt there is a single player/coach on the Texans willing to rationalize losing and electing to mail it in. I'm certain they've washed the stink of last Sunday off and are totally committed to beating the Ravens, despite their challenges.

LOL. I'm being boo'd!

I hope you're right, I just know it'll be very easy for them to think 5-2 is not too shabby heading into bye week...they won't actively tank the game, just a potential for a slight lack of focus and desire. Against a bad team, no problem. Against the Ravens? Big problem.

If we can't find the run game, it's going to be a baaaaaad day.

Bolded: GP, I don't think there's any way in hell this veteran leadership lets this team get into the mind set that "5-2 is not too shabby heading into bye week". I just don't think there's anyway that they will allow themselves to come out uninspired.

As far as the run game goes, if Dallas can run for 250+ with they offer at RB I don't see any reason Arian and Forsett can't gash them for that and more. I really don't see Tate being able to do much with the way his toe is. With the run game faring well, we all know what that leads to.

I really do hope this is the game where we shake the "We haven't beaten the Ravens" voodoo.

You do know about the "voodoo" don't ya?

I can't see any professional football thinking 5-2 is good enough compared to 6-1, or thinking a two game losing streak is good going into the bye.

However, some teams just can't do anything about it. Like you said, our leaders may be young, but they've been in the trenches & they've fought their fires. They played this team before & they know it's going to take 60 minutes of everything they've got to win this game.

Another good point. other than the Packers game, the only thing that's been wrong with our running game is Tate's big toe.

It's going to be Texans 31, Ravens 24. And I hate writing that. We're terrible on the road and the defense is falling apart.

Actually, both defense's are falling apart. Which makes a shootout probable, and I don't see us winning a shootout.

If you guys have any success at all stopping the running game, you'll leave with a win. And I'm sure that Flacco took some good notes looking at JJo on game film.
