Texans Vs. Ravens, 2012 NFL Playoffs: Baltimore Opens As A Touchdown Favorite

The Houston Texans will be road dogs for their first away game in franchise postseason history, as they head to Baltimore to meet the 13-3 Ravens Sunday at 12 p.m. CT on CBS with the Ravens receiving a seven point advantage.

Baltimore defeated Houston 29-14 October 16, although with a different offensive situation for Houston, as starter Matt Schaub was still healthy and wide receiver Andre Johnson was not. Amidst a rotating situation at quarterback, the Texans' offense relied heavily on Arian Foster and Ben Tate this season, becoming the NFL's second best rushing team (153 yards a game), while Baltimore's rushing defense was also the league's second best (92.6 ypg). Foster ran for exactly 153 yards against Cincinnati in Houston's wild card win Saturday.
