HOUSTON - Six games into the NFL Season life is still good for the AFC powerhouse Texans who stand 5-1.
The Texans scored at least 27 points in each of their first four games, all victories.
The offense hasn't run quite as smoothly in the last two, and looked downright sloppy at times in Sunday's 42-24 loss to Green Bay. Matt Schaub was sacked three times and threw two interceptions, Arian Foster was held to 29 yards rushing and the Texans (5-1) mustered only 321 yards overall.
"There is no doubt we will bounce back strong," Safety Danieal Manning told KPRC-TV Sports in the lockerroom on Wednesday " We had a bad game and have learned from the mistakes. It's about how we respond because the Ravens offense will come after us."
Next up is Baltimore (5-1), a team that stifled Houston's offense twice last season. The Ravens defense isn't what it used to be, and has lost star linebacker Ray Lewis and cornerback Lardarius Webb. But Houston coach Gary Kubiak is focused on his team's offense, specifically its inconsistent ground attack.
