Go Houston? :grin1:
I think the texans would have beat the ravens with Andre Johnson. Without him I doubt it unless Flacco sucks again which is possible.
The texans will hate to lose two in a row... they have mason now too...
maybe they will take the ratbirds down.
The Texans need to treat this is a big time game, and I'm sure they are. With Andre Johnson still not back to being healthy and Williams out out for the year, it's now an even bigger problem.
They're defense is playing pretty well so far so I have no doubt they could hang with the Ravens offense no problem. However with Williams out, how much of a dropoff will that show...
A Texans win Sunday would be huge and would then put the Steelers back in control of the AFC North assuming of course the Steelers beat the Jags. The Ravens have the Jags and Cardinals the next 2 weeks on their schedule so if the Texans dont beat them on Sunday then the odds are good that the Ravens will be 6-1 headed into the rematch here on Sunday night in November which puts even more pressure on the Steelers to not lose any games between now and then. If they can somehow beat the Patriots the Steelers could then take over 1st in the division with a win over the Ravens the following week assuming both win out between now and then...
Another reason to cheer for the Texans is that a Texans win will give the Steelers an advantage over the Ravens in common games.
