Rob Carr/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) — The Ravens enter Sunday’s game against the Texans holding onto the final spot in the AFC playoffs.
With the Chiefs and Chargers right behind them, Baltimore understands the importance of getting a win against Houston.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he expects it to be a tough game on the body. “Every time we play Houston, it’s always extremely physical,” he said Wednesday. “They’re always committed to running the football; they have one of the best backs in football [Arian Foster].”
Baltimore is 4-3 on the road this season and Houston is 3-3 at home.
“We’ve played down there a good amount,” Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said. “It’s not going to be a new scene, we’ve played against most of those guys, how much that really matters, I don’t know.”
Houston Pro-Bowl defensive end J.J. Watt has recorded seven sacks in the last three games for a season total of 16 1/2, which is third in the league.
When asked what will happen if Watt gets to him on Sunday, Flacco said, “I’m going to pick myself up off the ground. I don’t know who hits me; I hope it’s not him. I hope it’s not any of them.”
