The Houston Texans were eliminated from their first playoff run in a defensive battle of wills with Baltimore. The Ravens, as they so often do, won that battle winning 20-13.
Although running back Arian Foster was able to gain 132 yards on the ground, Houston ended up turning the ball over four times. An experience that rookie quarterback T.J. Yates is bound to learn from.
"We gave them the ball and we gave them a chance to score points. Our defense did a great job all game long and if we protect the ball better, I think we come out with a win today." said Yates. "[Baltimore] is one of the best defenses out there. They taught me a lesson on how to play football today for sure."
Baltimore will now travel to Foxboro to take on Tom Brady and the Patriots next week in the AFC Championship.
