This week against the Houston Texans, the Baltimore Ravens found themselves in a strange place. They were leading by five points midway through the fourth quarter and the Texans were only a drive away from a potential game-winning touchdown.
In spite of, that drive never came about. The Ravens had the ball in clock-control mode as they drove the ball 66 yards, capping it with a four-yard rushing touchdown by Ricky Williams. From there, the Ravens went on to win their third-straight with a final score of 29-14.
Although it was a defeat, the Texans played admirably without star players Andre Johnson and Mario Williams. Their depleted offense simply was unable to keep up with the Ravens, as they were unable to score a single point from midway through the third quarter.
Despite the large margin of victory, the Ravens' offense stalled on several occasions. Kicker Billy Cundiff helped out by converting all five of his field goal opportunities, and the other two touchdowns were scored by Williams and Joe Flacco respectively.
Here are some things that I took away from this week's game.
