The Baltimore Ravens will face off against the Houston Texans in a huge game on Sunday afternoon in the NFL. This Week 7 AFC battle sees the north face the south in an intriguing match up between two of the best teams so far this year. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream via the NFL Sunday Ticket (link provided below).
Both teams come into this Week 7 match up boasting 5-1 records. They are both undefeated in divisional and conference games, and are so evenly matched that this one is anyone's guess to call.
JJ Watt will be one of the stand out players to watch on Sunday; his dramatic rise has been nothing short of sensational, and he already has 9.5 sacks - expect more on Sunday.
Overall the Texans' defensive lineup has allowed just 87.7 rushing yards on average, and 213.2 yards on pass. That puts then ranked seventh in the league for both pass and rush defense.
However, despite their good form, last week the Texans were trashed by the Green Bay Packers. It was their first and only loss of the season so far, but it will have acted as a big wake up call to the Texans' players and they will be desperate to bounce back today.
Meanwhile, the Ravens in contrast have had an unreliable defense so far this season, and their main threat has been in the offense. Their rush and pass offense are ranked among the top 15 in the NFL, and they showed that against the Dallas Cowboys last week - which was their fourth consecutive win.
Joe Flacco completed 65 percent of his throws for 234 yards in last week's 31-29 win. Ray Rice scored twice and gained more than 100 yards in total. Anquan Boldin also took five catches for 98 yards.
