Texans vs. Ravens 2013 final score: Baltimore dominates across the board in 30-9 win

Larry French

A weak offensive performance wasn't enough to hold back the Baltimore Ravens.

The Baltimore Ravens' offense wasn't impressive on Sunday, but it didn't need to be. The team dominated all three phases of the game to defeat the Houston Texans, 30-9.

The Ravens leaned on their defense and special teams in the first half, scoring 14 points without the aid of their offense. Quarterback Joe Flacco was unable to move the ball, but his teammates were opportunistic when they needed to be. The offense joined the party in the second half when Bernard Pierce ran for a 1-yard touchdown to seal the victory.

Houston was disappointing on offense. The team managed to move the ball through the air and on the ground, but continually failed in the short field, settling for three field goals.

Injury Report

There were no significant injuries in Sunday's game.
