Notes: It's sort of like looking in the mirror when you compare the Texans and the Ravens. Both teams are among the NFL's best defensively while offensively the focus is on running the ball. The Texans are led by the dynamic duo of Arian Foster and Ben Tate while the Ravens are led by Ray Rice. The Texans in particular will be hoping they can establish the running game as they have rookie QB TJ Yates at QB thanks to injuries. The last time these two teams met was back in Week 6 Baltimore cruised to a 29-14 victory but that shouldn't be the case this week.

Texans player to watch: RB Arian Foster - Foster is as good as it gets when it comes to running the football. he racked up 153 yards and two touchdowns against the Bengals last week. This week he'll be facing a much stiffer test against a Baltimore defence that allowed just 92.6 yards per game along the ground. Foster will be relied on heavily once again though with rookie TJ Yates at QB for the Texans.

Ravens player to watch: QB Joe Flacco - As good as their defence is the Ravens won't be able to rely solely on the likes of Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Haloti Ngata to lead them to victory in this one. They 'll need to Flacco and the offence to find away to put points on the board against a stingy Texans defence. Flacco will need to limit his mistakes and take advantage of any opportunities he gets in this one because there may not be many.
