Texans vs Ravens Last Meeting
In 2017, Houston was a 23-16 loser in Baltimore on a Monday night – current Ravens star QB Lamar Jackson was still at Louisville then. Current Texans star QB Deshaun Watson was out injured. The Ravens forced three turnovers, two in the final five minutes.
After Terrell Suggs stripped the ball from quarterback Tom Savage and Baltimore recovered, Justin Tucker kicked his third field goal with 2:53 remaining for a seven-point cushion. Anthony Levine then intercepted a Savage pass to clinch it.
Why Bet on Houston?
The Texans come off their bye and entered it with a 26-3 win over Jacksonville in London on Nov. 3. Deshaun Watson completed 22-of-28 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns. Watson only needed to manage this one, with the Texans defense holding the Jaguars to just a field goal. He threw a pair of goal-line TDs.
He’s now bounced back with consecutive multi-TD games after a Week 7 loss to the Colts. Through nine games this season, Watson has thrown for 2432 yards, 18 touchdowns, five interceptions and a 107.1 passer rating. Watson is tied for first in the AFC with 18 touchdown passes.
Carlos Hyde rushed 19 times for 160 yards in the Texans’ Week 9 win. Hyde had a career day in London, gashing Jacksonville for over eight yards per carry. He could have had a bigger game, but he fumbled at the goal-line at the end of a 58-yard run. DeAndre Hopkins caught 8-of-11 targets for 48 yards and a touchdown. Hopkins mostly worked underneath, averaging just six yards per catch. Hopkins has 100 yards or a touchdown in three of his last four games.
Houston picked off Gardner Minshew twice in the Week 9 win. Houston is currently ranked fourth in the AFC and tied for sixth in the NFL in takeaways forcing 14 takeaways (five interceptions, nine fumbles) through nine games this season.
A few injured players could return for Houston off the bye. Safety Tashaun Gipson (back) expects to play. He has missed the last two games. Getting Gipson back would be a welcomed addition to a secondary that’s dealt with multiple injuries. Bradley Roby (hamstring) is also getting close to a return.
The Texans are “optimistic” left tackle Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) will also return. Texans coach Bill O’Brien said No. 2 receiver Will Fuller (hamstring) returned to practice. It’s the first time Fuller’s practiced in any capacity since initially exiting in Week 7 against the Colts.

Why Bet on Baltimore?
After winning five consecutive games, Baltimore is currently in first place in the AFC North with a 7-2 record. The Ravens are off a 49-13 destruction of winless Cincinnati last week. Baltimore QB Lamar Jackson completed 15 of 17 pass attempts (88.2 percent) for three touchdowns and zero interceptions for a 158.3 rating, the highest attainable mark, and added a career-long 47-yard touchdown run in the Ravens’ 49-13 win over Cincinnati.
Jackson, who also had a 158.3 rating in Week 1, became the second quarterback to record a passer rating of 158.3 (minimum 10 attempts) in multiple games within a single season in NFL history, joining Ben Roethlisberger (two games in 2007).
Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters had an 89-yard interception return for a touchdown in the win. Along with Peters’ 67-yard interception return for a touchdown in Week 7 and Marlon Humphrey’s 70-yard fumble recovery touchdown in Week 9, Baltimore is the first team since 1970 to record a defensive touchdown of at least 65 yards in three consecutive games.
All Around Team
Peters has returned six interceptions for touchdowns in his five-year career, tied with Pro Football Hall of Famer Lem Barney (six) for the second-most by a player in his first five seasons in league annals. Only Hall of Famer Ken Houston (nine) had more.
Rookie WR Marquise Brown caught all four of his targets for 80 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens’ Week 10 win over the Bengals. On the first play of the game, Jackson found Brown over the top for a 49-yard chunk gain. Later in the game, Brown broke free for a 20-yard touchdown.
Coach John Harbaugh said defensive tackle Michael Pierce (ankle) is day to day. Harbaugh added, “Nothing serious. It won’t be a long-term injury. There’s a chance that he’ll play Sunday. We’ll just see how he does.” Pierce’s absence would be bad news for the front seven’s chances of slowing down Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson.
