It wasn’t pretty, but a win is a win and the Ravens are headed to New England for the AFC Championship. Though road games haven’t been their area of expertise this season (see Jacksonville) and they looked sloppy against T.J. (frickin) Yates, you have to be impressed with these 53 mighty mighty men.
Sunday’s 20-13 win against the Texans was a hard fought struggle that at one point looked like it was in complete control by the Ravens. But it ended up coming down to a Hail Mary at the end of the game that allowed Baltimore to make the trek to Foxboro to face Bill Belichick and the Pats.
Here are my thoughts on the Ravens victory of the Texans in the AFC Divisional Round.
I felt confident about this matchup heading into Sunday. On the BSR Podcast, I told Patrick Guthrie he was crazy for saying this game would go down to the wire. I was wrong. What worries me is that the Patriots took care of their weak opponent and the Ravens kept theirs close.
Baltimore could easily get out coached in the AFC Championship despite being the team with more talent. If the Ravens want to make it to Indy, they’ll have to do better than what we all saw on Sunday against the Texans.
