    I just went back and looked at the stat line.

    5 FGs for Billy. Need to convert at least 2 of those into TDs.

    Rushing TD by Flacco, rush TD by Ricky.

    132 yards rec. for Boldin. 101 rush for Rice. Flacco 300+ yds passing with a pick and a fumble.

    I don't think we will be able to contain Foster as much as we did in game one, simply because he will get more carries as a result of Yates being in at QB.

    The odds of Foster busting some long runs is higher.

    But at home with the 12th man our D could be lights out.

    Our biggest issues were that Joe and the OL struggled against their pass rush.

    If you convert 2 of those Cundiff FGs into TDs it's blowout level points - almost a 40 burger. Poor redzone conversion that game.

    I believe even still Flacco hung in and made several throws while being pressured/hit. But obviously there should be improvement, especially since we have them on tape.

    The Texans defense should not be underestimated. I think both the Ravens and Texans running games and defenses are about a wash.

    The key will be QB play (and OL protection of the QB)...if Flacco can make some plays like he did the first time...the Ravens have a good chance of winning.

    If the Texans at some point need Yates to make some plays...the Ravens have a real good shot of winning.

    If the Texans can force Flacco into fumbles (which let's be honest - he has developed a disturbing habit of doing) or INTs, which he has been able to avoid at home, I can see the Texans winning the game.

    Anybody (and I am not saying anybody in this thread) that thinks this will be an easy game based on "we scored 29 pts the last time" is kidding themselves. In fact, that week 6 game was 16-14 going into the 4th quarter.

    IMO they get a major downgrade with Yates playing, even with Andre back.

    I am quite certain Yates hasn't played in such a hostile away atmosphere. The closest thing would be the game at division rival Indy - a game in which they lost.

    I went back and watched an entire DVR of that game a couple days ago.

    We were pretty bad in the red zone that day.. Even after the two long bombs completed in the second half to Torrey and Boldin, our offense basically went backwards inside the red zone right after that.

    Houston has a solid defense. I expect a competitive game on Sunday.

    Yates is most likely playing a dumbed down version of the offense that Matt Schaub operates with. You're not going to see anything fancy.. Foster is a north/south runner and they run him off tackle a lot.. They'll play action off that and try to get the ball to Daniels or Andre...

    The crowd will definitely play a factor for Yates trying to call cadence and get the Houston offense to stay in sync.

    IIRC there were 3 fumbles in the game and the Texans recovered all of them (Flacco fumbled, Tate at the goalline and McPhee forced a fumble on Schaub). If the Ravens had recovered even one of them it would have been a bigger beatdown.

    I'm sure that Houston will have the same attitude as the Broncos for playing against the Ravens.They may push Yates to do more in passing because the Ravens will be geared up to stop the run. No turnovers and take aways on our side should make the difference.Home team advantage will help seal the game. Suggs said the team feeds off the energy the crowd provides.

    Glad that Grubbs will be back for this game.

    Gurode: It would be nice if he had a single flaw, because that might be correctable, but there isn’t just 1 thing to which I can point for Gurode’s performance to date. He’s missed too many blocks, allowed too many penetrations, been penalized too often, and hasn’t moved well enough to be effective. Nonetheless, Andre had a substantial, unscored contribution to the win over the Texans. He drew 2 personal fouls on Antonio Smith with the Ravens inside the 1-yard line. Each gave the Ravens a first down, and since it took the Ravens 4 plays to score, I’d term them significant. In each case, he stuck with his block to the whistle, Smith reacted violently, and Gurode did not retaliate. Were I to subjectively grade the 4 games he’s played, I’d say D, F, C (adjustment for the penalties drawn), F. There are worse backup linemen in the league, but the team needs Ben Grubbs back in a bad way. It’s hindsight and would have involved a roster-spot complication, but I would expect that Justin Boren would have outplayed Gurode in this opportunity. But, you know what they say…the practice squad left guard is always the most popular guy (not) on the team.

    Scoring versus Houston: 52 blocks, 8 missed, 1/2 penetration, 1.5 QHs, 1 false start, 43.5 points (.69 per play).

    Let's hope our secondary
    coaching doesn,t imitate Pittsburgs secondary coaching.
