It looked as if the Houston Texans might be able to pull of their third straight come-from-behind win on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, but after a messy offensive performance in the second half, the Texans suffered their first loss of the season.
Everything was close to over when Andre Johnson left the game through the third quarter with an apparent knee injury. The defense held its ground for most of the game during Ed Reed's debut, which is more than can be said for the Texans special teams unit.
After two straight weeks of showing a post-Super Bowl hangover, the Ravens, on the other hand, made the most of their opportunities. Joe Flacco didn't have a big one by any stretch of the imagination, but a pick-six from Matt Schaub helped turn momentum, and having Ray Lewis on the sidelines seemed to keep Baltimore's enthusiasm alive.
The Texans can take a lot out of this game, especially on offense.
Here's a look at a few takeaways from Sunday's loss.
