The 4-6 Houston Texans will travel to Baltimore to take on the 5-5 Ravens in this week’s Monday night matchup. Both teams won last week with Houston breaking a 3 game losing streak and Baltimore putting on a dominant display. The Texans defeated the Arizona Cardinals 31-21 at home. It was their first win since losing quarterback Deshaun Watson 3 weeks ago and their 31 points easily eclipsed the 21 they scored in their prior 2 games combined. The Ravens shut out the Aaron Rodgers less packers last week 23-0 on the road. Line Backer C.J. Mosley hurt his ankle last week and didn’t practice Wednesday and his status is questionable for this game.

Baltimore’s defense dominated Green Bay forcing 5 turnovers including 3 interceptions. They also sacked Brett Hundley 6 times and had 6 tackles for losses. They did a great job defending the run, as the Packers were limited to 75 yards on 25 carries, which is an average of 3 yards per rush. On the season, they have allowed their opponents to average 17 points and 325 yards per game. They also lead the NFL in interceptions with 16. Offensively, they struggled as Joe Flacco finished with a quarterback rating of 25 and they only produced 241 yards of offense. Flacco completed 22 of 28 passes for 183 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. His favorite target was Mike Wallace who had 4 catches for 56 yards and a touchdown. They struggled running the ball as they gained just 58 yards on 26 carries which is an average of 2.2 yards per rush.

Tom Savage had his best game as Watson’s replacement last week finishing with a passer rating of 97. He completed 22 of his 32 pass attempts for 230 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. His favorite target was Bruce Ellington who had 6 catches for 63 yards. DeAndre Hopkins also had a nice game with 4 catches for 76 yards and a touchdown. They had success running the ball as they gained 134 yards and scored 2 touchdowns on 34 carries. Defensively, they were able to sack Blaine Gabbert twice and intercepted him 2 times. They did a good job against the run limiting the Cardinals to just 48 yards on 18 carries. On the season, the Texans defense has allowed their opponent to average 26 points and 360 yards per game.

Both teams play in the NFC and if the season ended today, the Ravens would have the sixth and final spot with Houston on the outside looking in. Baltimore has home field advantage and is favored by a touchdown. They have gone 5-4-1 against the spread this season including 2-2 at home. Houston has gone 6-4 against the spread this season including 3-1 on the road. This is the second game in a row Baltimore is facing a back up quarterback and they dominated last week. Savage has shown improvements each week giving the Texans hope.
