Ravens Topple Texans, Win 30-9

Rob Carr

Following today's victory over the Houston Texans, the Baltimore Ravens have improved to 2-1 on the season.

Following last week's 14-6 win over the Cleveland Browns, the Baltimore Ravens needed a win today to break the .500 mark on the season. In what was an early-season, must-win game, the Ravens stepped up huge; delivering a convincing 30-9 victory.

Since a crushing week one loss to the Denver Broncos in which they allowed Peyton Manning to throw for 7 touchdowns, the Ravens' defense has bounced back tremendously; not allowing a single touchdown since. This resurgent defense has been the recent formula for success for Baltimore; aiding what has looked like an anemic offense up to this point in the season.

A tremendous defensive performance, special teams heroics by Tandon Doss, a rejuvenated Justin Tucker, and a rushing touchdown by Bernard Pierce were the keys to today's victory. One thing worth noting, however, is that the offense is still continuing to struggle, but showed signs of improvement late in the game. Hopefully they can tighten up any loose screws and come back strong next week.

As week three comes to its conclusion, the Baltimore Ravens are flying high and are now tied for first-place in the AFC North with the Cincinnati Bengals. Thank you for making Baltimore Beat Down your source of live gameday coverage, and we hope to see you next week as the Ravens head to Buffalo to take on the Bills.

Stay tuned for a full recap from Jason later on in the evening.

Go Ravens!

P.S. Congratulations to Ray Lewis who was inducted into the Baltimore Ravens Ring of Honor today! Thanks for memories, Ray!
