Baltimore Ravens vs. Houston Texans week 2 round table
The Baltimore Ravens just have to stay on track in this game. This is another game the Ravens are expected to win and it’s right before their Monday Night Football game with the Kansas City Chiefs. Baltimore must stay focused and if they do they should beat the Houston Texans. The Ravens beat a better Texans team last year. Last year the Texans had DeAndre Hopkins. Now their offense lacks an elite threat for their close to elite quarterback. The additions of Randall Cobb and Brandin Cooks do not make up for the fact that their lost a premium talent at wide receiver. The Ravens just held a Browns offense equipped with Odell Beckham Jr, and Jarvis Landry to six points. So when you look at this Texans team, can you show me a receiver that Marlon Humphrey or Marcus Peters can’t neutralize?
Last year the Ravens clobbered the Texans 41-7. While it’s a new year and a new location, the Texans probably don’t have an answer for Lamar Jackson, especially if he really did improve this offseason. In the last battle with the Texans, Jackson only had seven incomplete passes and had four touchdowns in the air. Jackson also had 79 yards rushing. Jackson should shine again in this game.
Put me down for Jackson to have a rare 300 yard passing game and another three touchdowns in the air. I also believe that the run game will get going in this game. Also put me down for the first 100 yard performance in the career of J.K. Dobbins. Anything Clyde Edwards-Hellaire can do better. Yeah, I said it.
Basically I have confidence in the Ravens on both sides of the ball and I lack that same confidence for the Texans. Deshaun Watson is one of my favorite players in the NFL, I thought he was the real deal at Clemson. The respect that I have for Watson and the fact that I am a big Zach Cunningham fan is all that I see going for the Texans. If the Ravens focus and do their thing they should win this game. Give me big Fantasy Football days from Jackson and Dobbins and another two touchdowns for Mark Andrews. Give me a Ravens 35-14 victory.
