dapats, you make good points, Ravens D not as good as it has been. Getting older.
But I just don't see the playmakers on Defense for the Texans besides Watt.
Brooks Reed is about what Nink is for the Pats. Barwin had a great year last year, but has done little this year so far.
The Ravens still have Ngata and Lewis and Reed and the young CB Webb, and of course Thuggs later in the year.

In response to pats-fan-2007's comment:
I think the Ravens are better.
Houston might have the best offensive player (Foster) and the best defensive player (Watt) in the league right now.
Besides those two, very beatable team.
Ravens gave up 350+ to Weeden, 90+ yards to BJGE, and 150 to Charles. Cassel and Weeden are among the top 10 worst Qbs in the league...Cassel is probably playing the worst right now. Mike Vick is also good for 3+ turnovers a game.
Im not sold on this Ravens defense yet. They are near the bottom of the league in yards given up. Once they face a team that doesn't commit turnovers like its their job, I think the defense will be exposed.
That being said, Suggs is coming back soon and that can change things.
