Texans Vs. Ravens 2012: Another Series, Another Sack For Baltimore, Hanging Onto 17-13 Lead

The second half has been a rough one for the Baltimore Ravens defensive line. They have failed to open running lanes and allowed their second sack of the third quarter, one on each of the Ravens' possessions. A third-down screen pass might have taken some of the air out of the Texans' rush, but it came up short. Baltimore is hanging onto a narrow 17-13 lead.

Ray Rice was stuffed on the first play for a one-yard loss. Flacco was sacked for an eight-yard loss on the next play by rookie defensive end J.J. Watt, who is quickly establishing his NFL bona fides with a very good postseason so far. A screen pass to tight end Ed Dickson gained 14 yards on third down, but the Ravens needed 19 following the stuff and the sack on the two plays before that.
