Comparing the Ravens and Texans offenses under Gary Kubiak

Kubiak has consistently fashioned great offenses during his career. But who has the better pieces for his system, Houston or Baltimore?

QB

No question here, Joe Flacco beats Matt Schaub. Schaub isn't as talented as Joe Flacco and never had control of the offense in Houston, something Flacco has in Baltimore.

Winner: Baltimore

Offensive Line

Kubiak's produced some good offensive lines in Houston, keeping Matt Schaub upright and churning out 1,000+ yard rushers in Arian Foster and Steve Slaton, but they didn't have too much star power. The Ravens have three-time All-Pro Marshal Yanda and another possible Pro Bowler in Kelechi Osemele.

Winner: Baltimore

RB

Ray Rice is a good RB, but his prime may be over as running backs tend to hit the wall at age 27. Kubiak had Arian Foster in his prime. Also, Foster has put up better numbers in a shorter time span.

Winner: Houston

WR

Houston has a possible Hall of Famer in Andre Johnson, which at first glance makes them look like they've won at WR. But taking a deeper look the Texans have struggled beyond the No. 1 WR spot with guys like Jacoby Jones, Kevin Walter ,Lestar Jean and DeVier Posey filling up the supplemental roles. The Ravens have good depth at WR with Torrey Smith, Steve Smith Sr., Marlon Brown, Jacoby Jones, Deonte Thompson and Michael Campanaro.

Winner: Baltimore

TE

Owen Daniels was a two-time Pro Bowler in Houston, where the Ravens haven't had a Pro Bowl tight end since Todd Heap.That being said, Dennis Pitta looks poised for a career break out in 2014. Also the Ravens have Crockett Gillmore and Owen Daniels at tight end, which gives them more depth than the Texans have had.

Winner: Baltimore

It looks like Kubiak will have more weapons to work with in Baltimore than he did in Houston. What do you think?
