A pair of 5-1 teams and division leaders clash in Week 7 as the Baltimore Ravens travel to Reliant Stadium to play the Houston Texans on Sunday. Experts across the Internet do not have a consensus as to who will win.
Aside from the undefeated Atlanta Falcons, these two teams represent the current best of the NFL. The Texans are coming off their first loss of the season, a 42-24 beating at the hands of the Green Bay Packers. While boasting one of the league's best offenses as led by Matt Schaub and Arian Foster, the Texans also rank in the top seven for both rushing and passing defense.
The Ravens survived a 31-29 win against the Dallas Cowboys last week, but lost veteran linebacker and leader Ray Lewis, who underwent surgery to repair an injured tricep suffered during the contest. The Ravens' only loss was in Week 2, a one-point defeat to the Philadelphia Eagles.
At CBSSports.com, the experts are split; four say the Texans will win, four say the Ravens will win. All three pickers on record at Yahoo! Sports so far have picked the Texans, and the four experts at FoxSports.com agree, but with a caveat: all four pickers at FoxSports.com say the Texans will not cover the 7.5-point spread.
