Prediction time: Texans at Ravens

9/21/2013

BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens lead the all-time series with the Houston Texans, beating them in six of seven meetings (including playoffs). But a majority of the ESPN prognosticators believe the Texans will prevail in Baltimore on Sunday. Here are the official predictions (with their prediction record for the Ravens in parentheses):

Jamison Hensley (2-0), Ravens team reporter: Ravens, 24-21. While many are focused on Ed Reed's homecoming, the game will be decided by the fact the Ravens are playing at home. Quarterback Joe Flacco has won 17 of his past 19 starts at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium.
