The Ravens were the least impressive of all the teams that advanced to next Sunday's championship games.
The Ravens, however, looked ragged in a 20-13 victory over the Houston Texans in a divisional round game They managed 227 yards on offense (their second-fewest of the season) and allowed 131 yards rushing (their third-most of the season).
Ravens coach John Harbaugh still delivered a confident postgame message in the locker room, which was televised by CBS Sports:
"You are a great football team. Do you know why? You won the game. Nobody holds onto a four-point lead. Nobody holds onto a four-point lead like that in this league except one team -- the Ravens. It was offense, it was defense and it was special teams. That's what it took in this game to win this game. That's what you did. And whatever it takes to win the next game -- it doesn't matter -- we will find a way to get it done. That's what we're going to do. We will find a way to get the job done. No matter what it takes. All three phases, by any means necessary."
