The Baltimore Ravens are headed to the AFC Championship. But they’ll need to be play significantly better next weekend in Foxboro Stadium if they have any intention on heading to Indianapolis for the Super Bowl.
On Sunday, the Ravens beat a walking and wounded Texans team by only a touchdown– 20-13 in the AFC Divisional Playoff. The Ravens will now play the New England Patriots next weekend.
The major reason why the Ravens won on Sunday was the play of Texans’ quarterback T.J. Yates, who threw three interceptions after a clean performance against the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Wildcard.
Once again, the Ravens defense came up big for their team when it mattered most. They may not have been all that stylish, but at the end of the day, they got the job done. Ray Lewis led the team with seven tackles, Ladarius Webb had two interceptions and Ed Reed had six tackles and an interception.
The Texans had their chances, and actually had an incomplete pass in the end zone on the final play of the fourth quarter that would have forced overtime.
