6. We know: Between injuries and inexperience, the Houston Texans are in for a tough one

It's hard to find an injury report featuring more players than the one released by the Houston Texans on Friday, not to mention the players they had already ruled out before because of different injuries.

Houston won't be able to field linebacker Blake Cashman and safety Jimmie Ward. On top of that, the franchise ruled wide receiver John Metchie III out for Sunday a few hours ago.

Running back Dare Ogunbowale could join all of the men listed above as he was also listed as "questionable" on Friday's injury report.

Now, you add the fact that Houston is entering the 2023 season featuring a rookie QB and a head coach making his debut at the role in the NFL, and things are looking rather ominous for the squad from the Lone Star State.

The Ravens have won six of their last seven Week 1 games, have outscored their opponents 228-68 in those matchups, are 3-0 against the Texans in their last three meetings, and Harbaugh is 21-7 against freshman QBs since taking over the head coach position in Baltimore all the way back in 2008.

Cold world, Houston.
