Ravens To Host Texans In Divisional Playoffs

Although the Houston Texans are probably still celebrating their 31-10 beatdown of the Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild Card round playoff game yesterday afternoon, the Baltimore Ravens are already hard at work putting together a gameplan for their upcoming Divisional Round playoff game next Sunday at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium. The Texans did the exact same thing to the Bengals that the Ravens did last week, which is run the ball down the throats of Cincinnati's defense.

Houston will have a tougher time next weekend, just like they did when the Ravens defeated the Texans in Baltimore's week six 29-14 victory. Texans RB Arian Foster was limited to 49 rushing yards on 15 attempts while on the other side, Ravens RB Ray Rice broke the century mark with 101 yards on 23 carries.

Joe Flacco was the hero of the day, throwing for 305 yards, with two long passes of over 50 yards to Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith. Boldin should be healthy off of this full week of rest to be ready for the game and the Ravens already have been listed as a nine-point favorite over the visiting Texans.
