The Houston Texans got a huge victory last Sunday that brought shockwaves over the NFL community. Many thought the Texans would beat the Ravens at home especially since the Ravens lost 2 starting defenders the week before including Ray Lewis. Many, however, would never of imagined Houston would of beta up on the Ravens the way they did Sunday though. When the carnage was over, Houston walked away with a big 43-13 win.
The Texans are now 6-1 on the season and have reopened some eyes with this latest victory. Schaub passed for 256 yards and two scores for Houston while Foster added 2 rushing touchdowns of his own on 98 yards rushing. The team even added another touchdown by the defense as they were better all-around on Sunday. More impressively, they handled the ball nearly 2/3s of the game.
Baltimore was dominated at every level against Houston and fall to 5-2 with the loss. This loss came just one week after nearly losing to the hapless Kansas City Chiefs. Joe Flacco passed for only 147 yards and was intercepted twice. Ray Rice was also eliminated as a threat and only gained 42 yards rushing on just 9 carries. Baltimore is now left with a lot of questions following their play in the past 2 weeks. Thankfully for them, they will be on a bye week 8. Hopefully, for them, they can get their act together and get back to the playoff caliber team they began the year as. Although injuries are tough, they happen to every team and the good teams get over them.
