Apparently, there aren't as many concerns with Houston's loss to Green Bay as there are over the amount of injuries the Baltimore Ravens took in Week 6.
The Texans are 7½ -point favorites as they host the AFC North-leading Baltimore Ravens in Week 7.
Houston took its first defeat of the season -- a 42-24 shellacking at the hands of the Packers -- while the Ravens lost cornerback Lardarius Webb (knee) and linebacker Ray Lewis (triceps) to season-ending injuries in their 31-29 win over Dallas.
The Ravens win almost wasn't. The Cowboys made a furious comeback in the last two minutes of the game. Dallas scored a touchdown, then missed a two-point attempt but recovered an onside kick. They missed a 50-yard field goal to lose the game at the buzzer.
A big part of Houston's 7½ -point advantage is likely because the Ravens were surrendering rushing yards in bulk before Webb's and Lewis's injuries. Baltimore gave up a franchise-high 227 rushing yards to the Cowboys. Houston averages 134.6 yards per game, sixth-best in the NFL.
