I try to be bold in my predictions. In doing so, I open myself up to failure. It’s a fine line we walk when trying to create bold predictions. This has never been more true this week, when the Baltimore Ravens take on the Houston Texans.

At full strength, this Texans team is a quality opponent with a stout running game, a just good enough passing game and a scary, if inconsistent defense. At full strength and at home, the Texans are the kind of team the Ravens tend to lose to.

The Texans are not at full strength. Either Case Keenum or Thad Lewis will start at quarterback. What that means is anybody’s guess. Continue on to the next slide to see some predictions which will try to make sense of it.
