Baltimore's offense wasn't impressive on Sunday, but it didn't need to be. The Ravens' dominated all three phases of the game to defeat the Houston Texans by a score of 27-9.
The Ravens leaned on their defense and special teams in the first half where 14 points were scored off an interception and an 82-yard punt return by Tandon Doss. Quarterback Joe Flacco was unable to move the ball, but his teammates were opportunistic where they needed to be. The offense joined the party in the second half when Bernard Pollard ran for a 1-yard touchdown to seal the victory.
Houston was disappointing on offense. The team managed to move the ball through the air and on the ground, but continually failed in the short field -- settling for three field goals.
There were no significant injuries in Sunday's game.
Ravens' wide receiver Torrey Smith finished with 92 yards receiving on five receptions.
Andre Johnson had a disappointing day, as the Texans' wide receiver finished with just 36 yards.
9/29: Houston vs. Seattle
9/29: Baltimore vs. Buffalo
