The number one seeded Baltimore Ravens will host one for the more surprising playoff teams in 2023 in the Houston Texans. The Ravens will be looking to feature their league-best rushing attack against a Texans defense that finish sixth-best in the NFL at stopping the run. The winner of that battle will be in good position to win this game.
Divisional Round Playoffs
Houston Texans (11-7) at Baltimore Ravens (13-4)
Kickoff: 2:30 PM MT on January 20, 2024
Location: M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland
The Houston Texans cinderella turnaround from the number two overall pick last season to two games away from a Super Bowl appears will hit a stone wall called the Baltimore Ravens this weekend. With the best record in football and a very balanced highly ranked offense and defense, the Ravens just have too many weapons to be stopped this early. I don’t think it will be close.
Prediction: Ravens 34, Texans 20
The team that has consistently outperformed my expectations all year long as been Baltimore and I think I am down expecting them to falter at this point. They have been the most consistent and best team all year long and they should have a clear path to the Super Bowl here.
