The Houston Texans are set to visit M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland for an AFC clash against the Baltimore Ravens.

CB Gareon Conley led the way for the Houston defense with 8 tackles and 3 pass deflections. LB Brennan Scarlett was able to get into the Jacksonville backfield a handful of times as he pitched in 2 sacks and 1 TFL. The secondary had a productive game for the Texans as safety Justin Reed and safety Jahleel Addae each recorded interceptions.
The Baltimore Ravens come into this matchup with a 7-2 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent road game against the Cincinnati Bengals, 49-13.

This will be one of the best games of Week 11 as we have two of the most electric QBs in the NFL, but the Baltimore Ravens are rolling as of recent with back-to-back blowout wins. The Ravens currently have the best offense in the NFL as they are scoring an average of 33.3 PPG, and that could be accredited to Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram leading an explosive ground game. Houston lost J.J. Watt which is a blow to the pass rush, but it is also a help to Jackson as he can drop back and find his mismatches with his TEs. The Baltimore defense has been improved with Marcus Peters in the secondary, and they will be too much to handle at home.
