Finally a home playoff game for Joe Flacco. I believe the crowd will be amped up and ready to roll. There are a few match-ups that worry me in this game.
First is Michael Oher against J.J. Watt. Watt had a huge game against Andre Smith of the Bengals, including that incredible interception at the line of scrimmage. J.J. Watt is a high motor player, that routinely knocks passes down at the line of scrimmage.
The other matchup that scares me is the Ravens Coverage of the Texans tight ends. They use Daniels, Dreesen, and Casey on play action passes. The Texans love to roll the quarterback out and have one of their tight ends running across the field on a one man route.
All of that being said, I still believe the Ravens win this game. I have it 23-17 Ravens over the Texans. I believe the Ravens get ahead early and hold on in the 4th quarter for a big win and a trip to the AFC Championship.
