Week 14 NFL Picks For Ravens-Texans: Houston's Last Chance. Again. Maybe?

The Houston Texans (5-7) will be dressed in their Battle Red finest as they welcome ESPN and the Baltimore Ravens (8-4) into Reliant Stadium for "Monday Night Football."

Both Houston and Baltimore are coming off prime-time losses to Pennsylvania-based teams (Houston's 34-24 loss to Philadelphia and Baltimore's 13-10 loss to Pittsburgh) which saw their hopes end as their respective quarterback underthrew a receiver on 4th down.

For Baltimore, the loss puts them behind the 8-ball for the AFC North championship while Houston has to win its last four games, and get a little help, to capture the AFC South and their first ever playoff birth. Yes, despite losing five of its last six, the Texans still have a chance at winning its division.

For either team, Monday night can be a statement win and a springboard to something greater. All of the Yahoo, ESPN, and CBS picks are not in yet, but one man has decided to pick the Texans...or clicked the wrong button.

Since it's on Monday Night, the game will be aired on ESPN at 7:30 PM CT. If you're in the Houston market then the game will also be found on CW39. Your usual suspects will pick up the radio: Sports Radio 610 AM, 100.3 KILT FM and La Tremenda 1010 AM if you prefer Spanish.

The betting line is only giving Baltimore three points at the moment.
