History was made in Houston. Not the good kind.

For the first time since December 9, 2007, the Baltimore Ravens allowed 40 points to an opponent. The Texas walloped the Ravens 43-13 on Sunday, five years ago Baltimore was beaten 44-20 by the Indianapolis Colts.

MASNSports.com’s Josh Land points out that the Ravens had won five of their first six games this season despite their defense ranking 26th in the NFL.

That obviously caught up to them on Sunday when they allowed 420 total yards to Matt Schaub, Arian Foster and the bad guys in the red uniforms.

This ain’t your grand daddy’s Ravens defense.
