    That's one way to keep it close...

    Maybe that will quiet things down.

    Ravens are my insurance team against the Bills and Chiefs but on the other hand, I feel like rooting for the underdogs. I am torn.

    Most false starts I’ve ever seen in a game and it’s still the first half

    It's loud.

    Supposedly the Texan coaches had a plan for that. Guess it ain't working.

    Stunning first half.

    The Ravens are choking. Simply unbelievable.

    Man.... maybe the Texans can actually do it. I'm pulling for them. Which in and of itself made me figure they'd go down in flames. Go Cashman! lol

    Why are you guys calling this choking? Texans are legit with a great young QB. Texans defense is also legit. Ravens should still win but Texans have a good future with this QB and young Head Coach.

    No mixed feelings for me - I'm thrilled with the way the first half went. Haven't been a fan of the Ravens since way back to the Ray Lewis days.

    Bad job by ESPN/ABC.

    I can't tell what's happening when Jackson drops back to pass.

    He drops back and holds on to the ball no explanation by the TV guys why OBJ, Agholor, Flowers etc. aren't getting open. Or is Lamar gunshy?

    And it looks like Baltimore's pass protection is collapsing around Jackson.

    They showed the stat early in the game how many sacks Baltimore's defense had this season yet did Stroud get sacked once in that first half?

    10-10 despite Houston not having scored a offensive TD yet. Despite not doing much running the ball. How many penalties against did Houston have in that first half?

    They’re two score favorites with probably the best roster in football against a team with no running game. I’d say this is a bit of a choke job so far. But if they win no one will really remember regardless of the score.

    So Ryans is sending blitzes against Jackson.

    What? The Ravens have never seen a blitz package before?

    This is craaaaaazy.

    They play in the same division as the Steelers and they've never seen a blitz before?

    Holy moly man.

    Doesn't take away from the 100 out of 100 season the Texans have pulled out of nowhere this year though. They are even putting up a good showing against Super Bowl favorite here. Coach and QB look like a winning combo for years to come.
