After Williams, the Ravens went to Ray Rice for another five yard gain. On second-and-five, Anquan Boldin made a dramatic catch on a 28-yard pass from Joe Flacco. That catch on the deep right side of the field put the Ravens at Houston's 33-yard line just as the two-minute warning stopped play.

With a new set of downs, Flacco hit Rice on a short pass for no gain. He went deep again, but Boldin couldn't come up with the ball. On third down, Houston brought a corner blitz. Rookie defensive end J.J. Watt broke through line and sacked Flacco, forcing the punt.

Flacco has had some help from his receivers through the first half, as evidenced by Boldin's catch here. He's 6-for-15 with 80 yards and two touchdowns, but the Ravens have been throwing deep more than usual in this game. Ray Rice leads the Ravens with 30 rushing yards on eight carries. Boldin has three catches for 59 yards and a touchdown.

For the Texans, it's been all Arian Foster. He has 95 yards on 15 carries and his team's only touchdown. Rookie quarterback T.J. Yates is nine-for-18 with 87 yards and one interception.
