The Ravens could really use a Texans loss today. if the Texans win, the Ravens need them to go 2-2 down the stretch while the Ravens run the table to take their first conference first seed. if they lose today, they just need to win one more than the Texans for the rest of the season, that is a much simpler task.
last week the Jacksonville Jaguars were leading the Texans by 14 in the fourth quarter, but they allowed the Texans to go on an insane rally and despite multiple chances to win, the Jaguars couldn’t finish the job and they lost by a field goal in overtime. It was difficult to watch. But four days later, here we are again. the Lions have a 7 point halftime lead to go with one of the most explosive offenses in the game. maybe they can finish the Texans off like the Jags couldnt. so far the Texans have had no answer for Calvin Johnson who already has over 100 yards and a score. and the Texans defensive line hasn’t been able to get close to Matt Stafford. The Lions D isn’t playing great, but they are doing enough to get the job done and making plays when it counts like forcing a sack fumble to end the half.
Ravens fans are rroting for you Lions, go get um boys!
