    List of injury report: http://www.houstontexans.com/gameday/InjuryReport.asp

    I'd say we'll take this game by two tds. Going against a team with a young, rookie QB is a very good thing for us. We need to disturb his game early and often with our d-line, we cannot let him get his game going, and we must make him make bad decisions. If we can't do it with just our linemens, then we need to blitz,blitz,blitz with our backs. Instead of having those extra LBs cover receiver, we need to send them blitzing in.

    Offensively we need to run the ball effectively, of course. Matt needs to make better decision by throwing the ball away and getting outs of harm way if the Ravens close in on him. He can't stand just stand there and get hit, because we all knows he's as fragile as an egg and will crack easily like one.

    I say we'll be up 17-7 at half-time, and finish them off in the 2nd half.

    Final score: 27-13.

    can I get an amen?

    Texans - 31
    Ravens - 20

    Slaton 54 yard TD run, OD 23 yard back-of-the-endzone TD catch, 2 more sacks for Mario, pick 6 Freddie B

    I'll be happy if any two of those happen.

    I'll say ..... 24-16 Texans.


    I think after watching last weeks tapes Smith will wake up and stop sending LB's to cover WR's and DE's to cover backs and use them to put more heat on the QB instead.

    21-14 ravens (hate to say it)

    their defense is going to give our offense fits, the ravens defense imo is better than the steelers

    Probably going to be a sloppy game by both offenses. Our defense should give us a sigh of relief.

    No way we lose the home opener...whether it's played on Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday.

    If we can't stop the Raven's rushing attack, we're in for a long (actually, short, since the clock will run constantly) day.

    Are you guys the same people that said we would win the first game by a big margin?

    Just kidding.

    I'm going with the theme of this thread and say the TEXANS WIN as well.:kingkong:

    We struggle to score, but our defense finally pulls a good game against a mediocre offense. We get a turnover or two that turns into points, but only one TD for the good guys.

    Go Texans

    The confidence in this thread is similiar to the fans of the cinncinati bengals before they played us...they said the same things:

    1.) joe flacco can't beat us
    2.) there offense isn't good
    3.) there d is old

    LOL@ the person who said slaton runs for a 54yd TD!!!

    You guys do realize what defense ur playing right? You have a better chance of ice skating for a touchdown against or run d.

    I'm going to be a contrarian here and say that I hope that we don't bring the house against Flacco, I think the best way to confuse a young QB is to mix up the coverages, disguise the looks and force him to find holes and thread the needle with passes.

    If we bring a lot of people it just means that we will have more holes in coverage and therefore easier completions. I also think the Ravens OL is decent enough to give him the time to find the dump off guy or the hot route receiver.

    I don't see this being a high scoring game, I hope that Texans return game sparks into life and Andre Davis or Jacoby Jones get us some field position/points and we win a squeaker on the boot of Kris Brown.

    Texans 10-9 Ravens
