The Ravens took a 20-10 halftime lead over the Texans into the locker room on Sunday thanks to touchdowns on both offense and defense. The Ravens, following a turnover on downs by the Texans, added to their lead moments after a Justin Tucker field goal, with Lamar Jackson hitting Patrick Ricard from a yard out. Houston quickly responded with their first score, as a 38-yard completion to Brandin Cooks set up Deshaun Watson’s 10-yard touchdown pass to Darren Fells.
A 26-yard completion from Jackson to Marquise Brown set up Tucker’s second field goal. Baltimore then extended its lead to 20-7 after L.J. Fort returned Keke Coutee’s fumble 22 yards for a score. The fumble was forced by All-Pro cornerback Marlon Humphrey. Marcus Peters’ interception moments later put Baltimore in position to add to its lead before halftime, but consecutive sacks by the Texans, including J.J. Watt’s second sack of the half, forced Jackson and the Ravens to punt. The stop helped set up Ka’imi Fairbairn’s 44-yard field goal just before halftime.
