Texans take advantage of Ravens injury-depleted D
Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Major contributions from Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb helped the Baltimore Ravens down the Houston Texans in last year's AFC divisional playoff game.
Neither, though, were in uniform on Sunday and the Texans took advantage of Baltimore's injury-depleted defense.
Arian Foster ran for two touchdowns and Matt Schaub threw a pair of touchdown passes in the Texans' 43-13 rout of the Ravens.
Schaub completed 23-of-37 passes for 256 yards, while Foster tallied 98 yards on the ground on 19 carries for Houston (6-1), which rebounded from last Sunday's 42-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Harassed for most of the afternoon, Joe Flacco registered just 147 yards through the air with a touchdown and two interceptions on 21-of-43 efficiency for the Ravens (5-2), who beat Houston 20-13 on Jan. 15 to advance to the conference championship game.
Ray Rice ran for a mere 42 yards on just nine carries in defeat.
