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.
I think it is going to come down to big plays by the defense, too. Now, whether that is a big play(s) by the Ravens defense due to Yates buckling to the crowd noise and Baltimore's pass rush, or by the Texans capitalizing on rookie miscues by Torrey Smith and them shutting down Ray Rice remains to be seen.

I think it is going to be a good game no matter what!

Lets not forget last time these teams played it was a 2 point game going into the 4th quarter, (Before Ray Rice went off on a tired defense). And the texans even had a small lead in the 3rd quarter.

With AJ back, it is going to be closer than most people think

I REALLY hope it doesn't come down to a Rackers FG. The dude has made me have doubts about him lately.

How does that happen? Both teams get disqualified? Stadium collapses? Either way, it's a very bold prediction.

I just rewatched our game against Baltimore earlier in the year. It was a pretty good game & we were very much into it until late in the 4th qtr.

We had a hell of a time stopping Ray Rice from running the ball (when it mattered) & stopping Anquan Boldin from catching the ball. Boldin had a career day against Jjo..... 132 yards or something on 8 catches. Not all on Jjo, but most.

We were able to run the ball well at times, need to improve our consistency there.

Honestly, I know we are a running team, I know we have a rookie 5th round draft pick as a QB & we have one of the best OL/running games in the league; but I would script about 10 pass plays in the first 15 & look to go pass heavy in this game.

Andre didn't play, & they had no answer for Jacoby Jones. If you've got those two on the field with Dressen or OD & Foster & Casey in the backfield, the Ravens won't be able to hang.

We can throw out a bunch of safe routes, crosses, come backs, etc...

If we can open a big lead on the Ravens through the passing game, we can make them one dimensional... if the game is in Flacco's hands, I like our chances.

I think Torrey Smith is a match-up nightmare for us.

HOU 20
BAL 27

I think the Ravens may be the one team we can win a shoot-out against. I think our chances are better if we're playing Flacco than if we're playing Ray Rice.

Ray Rice means they'll out "Texans" us. Ball control, steady scoring, good defense. If we can get a lead, early, force Flacco to take over, they are more apt to make mistakes.

I have to be honest.

Houston 13

Baltimore 31

I think Baltimore is a city TJ Yates won't want to see again for a very long time and 14 of those Baltimore points are off of picks. 1 is a pick-6.

I hope I'm wrong and I'll say this now: we beat the Ravens in Baltimore and we are going to the Superbowl. We get over that hurdle, and we will demolish whoever in the AFC championship. But I don't see how we get outta Baltimore with a win. Might take Foster for 200+ (against the freaking Ravens) and an unbelievable game and some Wade Phillips magic. I don't think Yates has ever seen pressure like Baltimore will bring next Sunday.

It is highly unlikely that we would beat the Patriots on the road.
