    I think that Houston will find out that, the Ravens are not the Bengals, but would not be surprised at a close game (In all honesty).

    Actually, Flacco has come up big the last THREE times he's faced them but who's counting?

    2011-Flacco took as many hits from the Texans as he did from any team. Was very fortunate to connect on some low percentage deep balls
    I'm sorry, but that's a lot of excuses. And none of that suggests Flacco will have an "off" game sunday.

    Excuses? I didn't lose to the Ravens. The difference between excuses and explanations are all ones of rhetoric. Instead of refuting the facts and analysis of what I said, you labeled it. If you still don't know the answer to the question posed at the beginning of the thread, I will direct you to the multitude of Raven fan threads that question Flacco's consistency and just Flacco's own defensiveness at the criticism he receives from the media.

    If you knew our local media, you would be surprised that he hasn't cursed them out by now.

    In regards to improvement in our pass blocking:

    First 8 games: Averaging one sack per every 16.2 attempts
    Last 8 games: Averaging one sack per every 18.6 attempts

    Doesn't seem like much but SD game had 5 sacks. An obvious outlier because we played from behind the whole game and Flacco was obviously taking more chances holding the ball at that point. If you replace the number 5 with our season average of 1.9375 and it becomes one sack per every 26 attempts.

    It says a lot that our sacks per attempt number as improved in spite of going from 309 attempts at week 8 to 233 attempts for the rest of the year.

    What does this tell us? We are going to run the ball like we have towards the end of the regular season. That is one way we will reduce the hits on Flacco. Secondly, our offensive line has shown improvement in protection since mid season so the chances of Flacco getting sacked when we do pass has gone down a bit.

    Flacco put up 305 yards against that D WITHOUT our starting LG. Sure he took hits WITHOUT our starting LG. Maybe I should repeat that, WITHOUT our starting LG.

    Thank you, drive thru please come again. Their D is chock full of rookies and no names playing above their level. Yeah sure I wanted us to draft JJ Watt also but that pick 6 he got against Dalton is a once or twice in a lifetime of a DE, and he's already used up one. Sorry but Flacco isn't Dalton.

    I believe the Ravens not only won handily but also lead in rushing yards, passing yards, and first downs.

    I think a lot of Ravens fans are over confident. Remember, Any Given Sunday. I think we'll still win, but it'll be close. Nail-biter for sure. Ravens 24 Texans 20
