Ravens vs. Texans: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

Rob Carr

Baltimore will need to make up for significant defensive losses by taking advantage of a shaky Houston secondary.

After six weeks of the 2012 season, only two teams in the AFC have a winning record. Those two teams will face each other in Week 7 in the marquee NFL game on Sunday.

The sole team with a better record than the Texans or Ravens is the Falcons, who are on their bye week.

However, neither team will enter with the momentum that is usually associated with a 5-1 record. The Texans are fresh off their first loss of the season after allowing Aaron Rodgers to rack up 338 yards through the air and six passing touchdowns in a 42-24 loss.

While the Ravens enter with four straight victories, none have been pretty, as Baltimore has had to claw for four victories by a combined 13 points. Also notable for the Ravens was a recent string of injuries that will leave them without Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb for the rest of the season, while Haloti Ngata and Jimmy Smith are each questionable for the Week 7 game.

For the Ravens though, the 2012 team has relied much more on a Joe Flacco-led offense that ranks No. 7 in the NFL and is the third-best in the league at not turning the ball over. To make up for the defensive losses, the Ravens will need to take advantage of a Texans secondary that looked especially shaky against the Packers.
