Ravens' blowout loss to Texans suggests they're vulnerable

The Baltimore Ravens were blown out 43-13 by the Houston Texans Sunday afternoon, an outcome Steelers fans will be pleased to see as they wait for their team to face the Bengals Sunday night.

The Ravens and Texans were the only two AFC teams with winning records, and Baltimore was surely hoping for a better outcome than this. Joe Flacco had a miserable game, going 21-for-43 with 147 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. And the Ravens defense, now without Lardarius Webb and Ray Lewis, failed to stop Matt Schaub, Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and the Texans offense, which racked up a 29-3 lead at the half.

The Ravens had seized a big lead in the AFC North, but Sunday's result suggests they might be vulnerable if another team in the division can seize the opportunity to challenge them. That team won't be the Browns, which lost 17-13 to the Colts Sunday. But whoever wins Sunday night's Steelers vs. Bengals matchup has a shot at making things interesting. The Steelers face the Ravens November 18 and December 2.
