6. Houston has been better at passing, but much worse when rushing the ball

The Texans have a small edge over the Ravens in pass plays, as Houston has completed 86 of their passes in their last four games against Baltimore to the Ravens' 80. However, as they say, the devil is in the details.

Simply put, the Ravens have not really needed to pass the ball that much nor to chase the Texans in those matchups. Thus, the running advantage in favor of Baltimore.

The Flock has rushed the rock 121 times to Houston's 100 carries in their last four meetings. The Ravens rushed for a monster 658 yards and 4 TDs compared to the mediocre numbers racked up by their foes in that span: 362 yards and 2 TDs.
