Go Texans.
We play on Sunday at 1pm on CBS. It's going to be hard for me to see this one. I would have been fine with the late game, but I'm going to have to do some negotiating.

I think we win the game against Baltimore, and I think it will be low scoring. The first one was low until they scored 2 gimmies in the final 7 minutes on short fields. I see no reason this one won't follow suit.

I do not know how loud Reliant Stadium really is, but the old Memorial Stadium (home of the Baltimore Colts) used to be titled "The World's Largest Outdoor Insane Asylum", and I can tell you from experience that M&T Bank is probably just as loud, if not louder (Memorial was an open horseshoe).

Home field advantage is a huge plus for the Ravens. 8-0 this year bears that out. Hopefully (for us Ravens fans, that is), it will be too much for Yates and Co.

But...just as the Steelers defense (while still rated #1 for 2011) has not been like the Pittsburgh D of old, the Ravens defense (#3 overall) has not been that hugely dominant Baltimore defense, either. They are #2 against the run, yet have given up several 100-yard games to RB's. And while #4 against the pass, they got torched by Rivers and the Bolts late in the season. So while (stat-wise) Houston's and Baltimore's defense is close (Texans are #2 overall, #4 against the rush and #3 against the pass), I am not going to say that RB's are afraid to play us, such as in our SB year when Eddie George got laid out by Ray Lewis and did not want to play the rest of the game.

It is hard to predict scores at this stage of the game, but if I had to make a pick right now, I'd say Baltimore-24, Houston-17. I think the game will be relatively close, but the Ravens are 8-0 at M&T Bank this year and I expect that to continue. Baltimore's homefield advantage is huge.
Unfortunately... this! ^^^

If we were playing in Reliant, I could honestly give a slight nod to the Texans. Ravens have looked horrible on the road for some reason.

I actually think our best chance is if Kubiak surprises by going pass heavy for this game.

We won't win this game is a shoot out, we have to shut their offense down which means forcing Flacco to throw. If we can manage that...

Houston 16
Baltimore 13

Nice post. I imagine this game will turn on whichever D makes the big plays and which O gets its ground game going. As we saw in the Bungles rematch, holding Foster down twice can be a tough thing to do. If our running game gets going, it will be an interesting game. I also wonder how Yates will handle the Baltimore passrush. He's quite a bit more athletic than Schaub when scrambling.
Hopefully, our D will be a bit better against the pass than the last time we played. We forced Flacco to throw and he did-pretty well for the most part.

Ravens come back looking sloppy after their bye week, Flacco gets picked twice and Brian Cushing punished Leach all game and we hold Rice for under 100 yards. You can hear a pin drop in the Ravens stadium in the 4th quarter.

Texans - 27
Ravens - 13

You do realize Rackers is one of only a select group of kickers who hold the NFL record for three kicks over 50 yards in one game, right?
