Are we looking at a potential AFC Championship Game preview when the Ravens and Texans lock up in Week 7?
Well, prior to Week 6, most pundits would have asserted so, but now, after Baltimore lost both Lardarius Webb and Ray Lewis for the season and the Texans looked puzzled against the Green Bay Packers, sentiments are changing.
Regardless, it's a noteworthy game—the type you circle on the calendar when schedules are released.
Joe Flacco and the Ravens bring a very balanced attack that benefits from the running exploits of Ray Rice, but can blow the top off a defense with Torrey Smith at a moment's notice.
Houston, prior to the debacle against Green Bay on Sunday night, was thought to be the most explosive team in the league. Now, it might not have been present that evening, but Arian Foster and Matt Schaub will look to exploit and decimate the Baltimore defense.
So, who wins this matchup and what are the keys to victory for both teams? Josh Zerkle, Aaron Nagler and Matt Miller give you their picks and their reasons for them.
