OFFENSE- I know this offense well, as I watched it from 1995-2008, and I miss it. Their boot plays are the key to stopping them and if you do, you will win. They like to cut block. QB Matt Schaub is a nice fit for that system. He has good mobility in the (Head Coach) Gary Kubiak system. They can run but their offensive line has a hard time against a physical defensive line. Their WR and TE fit that system well and Andre Johnson is one of the best receivers in the league.
(I am going to make a prediction here: Kubiak will be Denver's next coach and some of these Houston skill guys will be going to Denver in 2011.)
DEFENSE- In my opinion these guys can't finish. They have good pieces but not enough of them. I like the Ravens ground game here. Houston has a light front four and can be run on. Their corners are OK but not great. I think Houston is let down and that they are out of it even if they go 9-7. I expect a close game but Ravens win.
