The Houston Texans are currently tied for the AFC South division lead with the Tennessee Titans at 3-2. The Texans are coming off a 25-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders last Sunday while looking forward to a key matchup with the Baltimore Ravens this week. The Titans have their bye this week.

The Baltmore Ravens (3-1) are just coming off their bye week as they look forward to the Texans coming in town this weekend. The Ravens are currently ranked in the top 10 in defense in both rushing defense (2nd) by allowing just 72.5 yards per carry, and passing defense (9th) with 212 yards per game.

The Texans have looked balanced on both sides of the ball so far this year as they are ranked in the top 12 in the NFL in rushing offense (5th) and rushing defense (12th), along with passing offense (11th) and passing defense (6th).

The Jacksonville Jaguars (1-4) are losers of four straight after an opening-season win against the Titans. They take on the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend. The Manning-less and winless Indianapolis Colts (0-5) take on the Cincinatti Bengals this weekend in Cincinatti.
