Imagine being the Texans, you finish week 1 with a loss to the Chiefs, get that out of your system, on to week 2 and… it’s the Baltimore Ravens coming to town! What a way to start the season!
The Ravens look imperious in week 1, taking apart the Cleveland Browns and Lamar Jackson looking like he’s ready to go back to back for the MVP award! The Raven offense was flying and the defense stifling, they already look back to their 2019 best which is a worry for the whole league but especially a Texans team who struggled to do much of anything impressive against the Chiefs after David Johnson ran in for the first score of the 2020 Season until the 4th quarter in a game that was already over. On defense we didn’t see anything of any note outside of JJ Watt causing a little trouble early but mostly the Chiefs O-Line kept Mahomes clean and if you can’t pressure him you can’t beat him, same goes for Lamar Jackson who’s offensive line is stronger than the what the Chiefs run out in front of Mahomes.
I can’t give you anything other than a Ravens win here but there isn’t much value in that so instead we’re going back to a week 1 loser, we knew the RB’s were going to eat for the Ravens against the Browns but we picked the wrong one but Ingram has 3 TD’s in 3 career games vs the Texans so I’m going back to him this week, although if its another dud this week it’ll be the last time… you’ve been warned, Mark Ingram!
