The Baltimore Ravens Demolish the Houston Texans
The Houston Texans and the Baltimore Ravens game was to be one of the best games of Week 11 in the NFL Season. Baltimore decided to say get out of here with that as they demolished Houston by a score of 41-7.
There was no scoring in the first quarter. One of the key plays in the first quarter was on a fourth-and-2 from the Ravens 33-yard line. Deshaun Watson stepped back to pass and the pass was intended for DeAndre Hopkins in the end zone.
The pass interference challenge has been a complete waste this season. I don’t understand why the league even put this rule in the first place. Especially if they aren’t even going to enforce it.
Jackson threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Mark Andrews later in the second quarter. He caught four passes for 75 yards receiving and a touchdown.
In the third quarter, Lamar Jackson threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Mark Ingram II.
With Baltimore leading 27-0 on the Texans in the fourth quarter, Jackson threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Ingram II and he made some defenders miss on that touchdown.
Lamar Jackson completed 17-of-24 passes for 222 yards and four touchdowns. He also rushed for 86 yards on nine carries.
Mark Ingram II caught three passes for 37 yards receiving and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 48 yards on 13 carries.
The only touchdown that Houston scored in this game was on a 41-yard touchdown run by Carlos Hyde. Hyde finished with 65 yards rushing on nine carries and a touchdown.
Deshaun Watson struggled big time in this game for the Houston Texans. He completed 18-of-29 passes for 169 yards and one interception. Watson rushed for 12 yards on three carries.
DeAndre Hopkins was the leading receiver in this game for Houston with seven receptions for 80 yards receiving.
On the next drive for the Baltimore Ravens, Gus Edwards scored on a 63-yard touchdown run. Edwards finished the day with 112 yards on eight carries and a touchdown.
This was another statement win for Baltimore. They have recently beaten the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks as well.
The Ravens are trying to prove they are the best team in the NFL right now.
As for the Texans, they had no excuse not to show up coming off a bye week. Bill O’Brien did not have his guys ready to play in this game.
With this loss, Houston now drops into second place in the AFC South. The Indianapolis Colts are also 6-4, along with the Houston Texans.
Indianapolis already beat them once this season. Those two teams will play each other in Houston on Thursday night.
If the Colts were to win that game, they would have the tiebreakers they would need for the AFC South down the stretch.
Baltimore (8-2) will be on the road next Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams (5-4).
