The Houston Texans faced off against the Baltimore Ravens at the Reliant Stadium Monday night, and ended up repeating the same sad pattern that has become routine for them this season. Going up against one of the stronger teams in the AFC North, no one exactly had bets in favor of this team. Though Houston was able to drag it into OT, Joe Flacco and company turned it around with an interception return for a touchdown. It appears that the Ravens’ trend of losing fourth-quarter leads overcame the Texans’ tendency to flat out lose in the end. It all came to a close at a closer than expected 34-28. Vegas odds.
With this win, Baltimore improved to a 9-4 record and bounced back from their loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. While they do occupy second place of the AFC North, this team still has a few issues they need to address if they want to see a good end to their season. It was the eighth time Baltimore had lost a fourth quarter lead this year. Furthermore, the offense simply shut off in the second half of this game, allowing the game to go from a 21-0 lead in their favor to a tie by the end of the fourth. However, Josh Wilson managed to help his team win it with his 12-yard interception return for a touchdown in OT. With that, the Ravens put one more “w” in their record. Sports scores.
The Texans were able to drag it out, but in the end it was a case of too little too late. The same can be said for their season this year. Although technically they are not yet out of the running, the team’s trend of starting games off slow has really killed their chances. With this loss, Houston fell to 5-8 and a two game losing streak. See if they can move from the bottom of the anemic AFC South at www.scoresandodds.com, home of the best online betting information.
