Arrow Preview of the Baltimore Ravens.

Our Houston Texans still have alot to proove and salvage this season by winning a few more football games. Our next opponent, the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens are struggling much like us this season, but we both badly want a win. The Ravens have a young quarterback in Kyle Boller, and see potentail in him.

In terms of their defense, they have obviosly got some big-name players on that side, and even though they havent played their best this season, will always be capable of making a game-changing performance play.

Remember, this team beat a tough Pittsburgh Steelers team, even if they didnt have Roethlisberger. This team will come out playing aggresively, and it should be an intresting mathcup

Go Texans

Although I enjoy watching Ray Lewis in action, I'm not looking forward to seeing him next Sunday. I'm sure Carr probably feels the same way, too.

Finally a game where we don't have the worst QB on the field.

Too bad we don't have their defense, but hey, we got a chance.

Is Lewis even going to be healthy for the game?

Doesnt matter. He'll get 100 yards running on 1 leg...

What's the over/under on how many rides and the amount of yards Coleman takes on Lewis' back???

Ray Lewis is improving and is getting close to being able to return to action, as is Ed Reed. Both are still questionable from early reports. Will Demps is out. Jamal Lewis is their only healthy RB. Musa Smith is gone and Chester Taylor may still be out or questionable at best. They fought back from a 34-0 deficit last week to make it a 13 point game early in the 4th. Boller had some stupid turnovers early in the game that gift wrapped 21 points for the Bengals. He settled down and played well in the second half. If you have Todd Heap on your fantasy team, this is the week to play him.

How ugly will this game be? It sounds like it could be as nasty as the Cleveland game.

It's kind of a June Allison type of answer "It Depends". If we come out playing to move the ball by chucking it further than 5 yards, then yes we can win. If we come out playing to keep it close, then I doubt we win.

We have little if any run defense. I think it will be another boring loss. They have had a strong defense in the past and know how to out play capers in that part of the game. I wouldn't even play Carr in this game. There's nothing to be gained...........................

I don't think we should play any of our starters. They might get hurt.

I don't know if you've noticed, but Jamal Lewis has been absolutely pathetic this year. Run D won't lose us this game anymore than it lost us the other ones.

And the only reason that the Ravens scored a lot late last week is because the Bengals gave up trying entirely after they got up 34-0. It was only after that point that the Ravens were able to get anything going, after the Bengals let them.

Jamal had 113 yards on 20 something carries and a TD last week against the Bengals. If there's any defense he can continue to get well on, it's ours.
