Ravens vs. Texans: Final Report Card, Player Grades for Houston

For those of us who have followed the Texans from their inception, this is the game we have been waiting for. Scoring a record forty-three points is reason enough for celebration. But the circumstances leading up to the game are what makes this win so sweet. 

The escape from New York was when the doubts began, and the barrage of touchdowns from Aaron Rodgers was a throwback to other seasons that started with promise and ended up in despair. 

The fact the Ravens had a 6-0 lifetime edge on the Texans and defeated them in a close 2011 playoff game simply added to the pressure. Could a team that had not responded very well in the past make this one a game to remember? 

When the winning margin is thirty, how can it seem the game was not even that close? Pose that question to Joe Flacco and perhaps he will admit his 4.2 passer rating in the first half is what turned the game so completely in Houston’s favor. 

Besides the special teams and their special problems, every group came through in a big way. Individually, this is how they grade out.
