HOUSTON -- If the Texans beat the Cincinnati Bengals today, they will be headed to Baltimore for the divisional playoffs. And, if that happens, the Ravens will have a head start in terms of scouting the AFC South champions.
Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron is sitting in the stands for today's game, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Baltimore gave the Texans a courtesy call about this.
The Ravens will need all the information they can get on the Houston defense. The Texans finished the regular season ranked second in yards allowed (189.7) and fourth in points allowed (17.4 per game).
The leader of the Texans' defense is linebacker Brian Cushing, who should have been a starter in the Pro Bowl. He leads Houston in tackles with 114 to go along with four sacks, five passes defensed, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.
The Ravens, the second seed in the AFC, plays host to a divisional playoff game next Sunday at 1 p.m. Their opponent will be the highest seed remaining from wild-card weekend (so it'll either be Houston, Denver or Pittsburgh).
