The Baltimore Ravens came into this season as Super Bowl favorites and they really lived up to the hype in week 1, as they dominated the Cleveland Browns from start to finish. They will look to keep that momentum going this Sunday as they travel to Houston Texas for their week 2 matchup with the Texans.
The Texans were done no favors by the schedule in week 1, as they had to take on the defending Super Bowl champions on the road and although they lost, they did give a good account of themselves in that game and it looks like they have a solid core to work with in 2020.
We got used to seeing Lamar Jackson rushing for 100+ yards seemingly every week in 2019, but the young star QB was able to get it done with his arm against the Browns, as he threw for 275 yards and 3 TD’s with excellent efficiency hitting 20 of his 25 throws.
We saw more of that from him later on last season and it looks like he is picking up right where he left off and an accurate Lamar Jackson who can tear you apart with his rushing ability is a pretty terrifying thought for the rest of the teams in the AFC.
This defense, despite losing Earl Thomas, also looked extremely strong and well balanced as they were able to hold the Browns to 6 points.
They will need to bring their A-game this Sunday, however, as the Texans offense will present far more challenges than what they faced in week 1.
Despite losing that first game there were plenty of positives to take from that game against the Chiefs with Will Fuller filling in to the #1 WR role very nicely and David Johnson looking a bit like his old self rushing and catching the ball.
The one spot the Texans really failed in week 1 was their rushing defense, as they allowed rookie runner Clyde Edwards-Helaire to rush for 138 yards with great efficiency at 5.5 yards per carry.
They also were not fantastic against the passing attack, but a bit of that can be forgiven with the team and environment they were playing in.
The Texans very well could drop to 0-2 this Sunday, but they very well may have lost to the two best teams in the NFL should that happen and depending on how they look in this game there may be value going forward on this team if they are undervalued in the markets in future weeks.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Ravens ATS
I would get on this sooner rather than later, as I can’t see that -6.5 being available on the Ravens on Sunday afternoon. I know this is a bit of a square play, but I do not want to get in front of this team right now, as they matchup perfectly well against this Texans team and I struggle to really see a path to victory for them.
Lamar Jackson will be sharp again and I would imagine Hollywood Brown will make a big impact here playing on the turf in Houston.
