When the Ravens took an early 17-3 lead Sunday, it looked like we were headed for another AFC divisional round blowout.
Thankfully, Arian Foster and the Texans have fought back with a vengeance.
Houston has closed the gap to 17-13 late in the second quarter after some terrific playmaking by Foster. He has 124 yards rushing and receiving on the day. The Ravens have 79 yards combined as a team.
If not for some mental blunders by the Texans, Houston would be leading this game. They have controlled the line of scrimmage.
The Texans have been able to convert a few third and long plays. Ed Reed hasn’t made Texans quarterback T.J. Yates pay for a couple of loose plays.
This game looks a lot more like 49ers-Saints than Broncos-Patriots. We hope it stays that way.
