The AFC's two best teams will clash in Week 7 when the Houston Texans battle the Baltimore Ravens at Reliant Field on Sunday.
The Texans (5-1) are coming off a 42-24 drubbing by the Green Bay Packers last Sunday. Houston's pass defense let Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers have a field day, as the threw for 338 yards and six touchdowns. Houston will hope to prey on a Ravens run defense that has been uncharacteristically poor over the past two games, giving up over 200 yards rushing to both the Kansas City Chiefs and the Dallas Cowboys. Texans running back Arian Foster could have a huge day against the Ravens front seven.
Baltimore (5-1) squeaked out a 31-29 victory over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6 to give themselves a two-game lead in the AFC North. The big news in Ravens camp this week has been the loss of linebacker and team captain Ray Lewis, who was placed on the IR after tearing his triceps. On the bright side, the Ravens defense has welcomed back last year's NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Terrell Suggs, who was removed from the physically unable to perform list on Wednesday. While he's not expected to play on Sunday, his presence in Ravens camp could raise the spirits of the team heading into Week 7.
Kickoff for Sunday's game is scheduled for noon CT and will be televised on CBS.
