Texans v. Ravens Review

Baltimore Orioles

Baltimore Orioles

The Ravens squared off with the Texans in Ed Reed‘s return to Baltimore, and the Ravens returned the beating that was handed to them last year. The Ravens used a defensive touchdown and a special teams’ touchdown to take the lead and never look back. Quick hits from the game.

  • Torrey Smith is a really good football player and is willing the run across the middle to catch a pass.
  • Bernard Pierce did not look great, but he has a shot at redemption against the Bills in Week 4.
  • Joe Flacco is earning his contract so far, no matter how bad you thought it was in the off-season. Flacco has one returning receiver from last year, and is making the most of the crop he has.
  • I still do not like Tandon Doss, but his punt return TD was nice.
  • Daryl Smith is an absolute stud. Luckily, no one knew about him because he used to be a Jaguar so the Ravens were able to get him late when the cap space opened up in June. Much better than Dannell Ellerbe and Ray Lewis last year.
  • The defense is so much better than last year, and I couldn’t be happier about it.
  • Ben Tate is better than Arian Foster right now. Check out the yards per carry numbers. End of Story.
  • DeAndre Hopkins would have looked nice in purple.
  • JJ Watt is not as effective as he was last year because of the constant attention, but he is still a dominant force. That is how good he was last year.
  • Ed Reed might help the Texans’ secondary at some point, but he didn’t help against the Ravens
  • Texans will be a Wild Card team, at best
