The playoffs tend to bring out the best in players, coaches and teams, which is what Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is expecting from the Houston Texans when they visit M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday.
Houston’s defense finished the regular season ranked third against the pass, surrendering an average of 189.7 yards. The unit also ranked sixth in the league in sacks with 44 despite the loss of two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Mario Williams.
“They’re not afraid of bringing some pressure, lining it up and playing cover-1, playing man,” Flacco said Wednesday. “These guys, they have a good pass rush. I think we’ve got a good offensive line. So as long as we go out there and play the way we know how to play, I think we can take care of that just based on the fact that we have good players.”
