Houston Texans (2-3) at  Baltimore Ravens  (3-2) 

Gametime: 4:05 PM Eastern Sunday

 

The 3-2 Texans face a difficult road test in the Baltimore Ravens, who are coming off a bye. The Ravens have allowed the fewest rushing yards (72.5 yards per game) in the NFL, but Arian Foster was the last running back to reach the century mark against them. They certain will lean more on Foster and Ben Tate, as all pro wide receiver Andre Johnson will not play, and quarterback Matt Schaub has a sore shoulder. It may be a tall order, but we see Foster getting to the end zone. Also look for Kevin Walter and Owen Daniels for scores as well.

 

Touchdowns – Arian Foster, Owen Daniels, Kevin Walter

Sleeper – Derrick Mason

 

After scoring three defensive touchdowns against the New York Jets, the Ravens will look for more turnovers against the Texans. The Ravens jumped to a 28-7 lead in their last meeting, only to win in overtime after an interception was returned for a touchdown. Nevertheless, the Ravens are confident they can move the ball with Ray Rice and Anquan Boldin. We expect touchdowns from both. Also look for tight end Ed Dickson to see action as well.

 

Touchdowns – Ray Rice, Anquan Boldin

Sleeper – Ricky Williams
