The 2012 season was a magical one for the Ravens, one that clearly had peaks and valleys yet culminated at the summit of the ultimate NFL peak.
Earlier that season a banged up (5-1) Ravens team went into Houston to take on Gary Kubiak’s (5-1) Texans. The Ravens left battered and bruised, losing 43-13. This isn’t for the faint of heart but here’s the Good, Bad, Ugly & The Megan Fox from that game, entitled Sunday Bloody Sunday.
And here’s a Texans cheerleaders’ take on the game in “Cheer Chat”.
The previous season the Ravens hosted the Texans in a Divisional Playoff game that was a slugfest in the trenches. Perhaps the most memorable play in that game came courtesy of a future Raven, Jacoby Jones. Check out the highlights below from that game – one that would set up a showdown with the Patriots in New England for the AFC Championship.
Back in 2010 the visiting Baltimore Ravens got out to a 28-7 lead in the third quarter following a David Reed 103-yard kickoff return for a score. But there was no quit in the Texans. They wore out the Ravens defense with their up tempo offense led by Matt Schaub, Arian Foster and Andre Johnson and forced the game into overtime.
Fortunately the Ravens won the toss to start OT and that allowed an exhausted defense to get some needed rest. The Ravens possessed the ball for just 2:40 on the opening drive of overtime but that would be all the rest their defense needed.
After a booming 58-yard punt from Sam Koch, Haruki Nakamura made a great play to drop punt returner Jacoby Jones for a 3-yard loss to set the Texans up at their own 9-yard line. Following an incomplete pass by Matt Schaub, it happened on second down – a rare walk off pick 6 from Josh Wilson.
