Welcome to Behind Enemy Lines, our weekly segment where we chat with our corresponding FanSided sister site to get some inside intel on the Ravens’ opponent each week.  This week it’s Baltimore Ravens vs Houston Texans, and we are chatting it up with Yoni Pollack from House of Houston.

The Ravens pulled out the win at home last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars to keep pace with the AFC North leading Cincinnati Bengals, and they secured (at least for now) the six seed in the AFC playoff race.  The Texans, meanwhile, suffered a disappointing defeat at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts to drop to 7-7, a loss that seriously complicates their playoff chances.

We’re going to talk injuries (something these two teams know a lot about), two of the NFL’s best defenders in J.J. Watt and Elvis Dumervil, and all the other good stuff you would expect from a game that features a ton of connections (Gary Kubiak, anyone?).

Check out our conversation from Reply All below. This conversation will be developing throughout the day and tomorrow so be sure to check back in a few times as we discuss the upcoming game.
