The Texans are in unfamiliar territory for the second week in a row. After playing in, and winning, their first playoff game in franchise history last week, they now get ready for their first playoff road game in franchise history.
Houston is headed for Baltimore and are looking to avenge a 29-14 loss to the Ravens back on October 16th in Baltimore. Now the Texans looks to hand the Ravens their first home loss of the entire season, and they will have to lean on their 3rd string rookie quarterback to do it.
"It's definitely been a different season for me. For those first couple of weeks I didn't even put on a jersey. I'm definitely a lot more fresh than the rest of the guys on this offense. But this big of a game this time of year you don't have to worry about that kind of stuff. Everybody is going to be up for the game." said the rookie T.J. Yates.
But as if winning their first playoff road game and giving the Ravens their first home loss was not enough to overcome, the Texans have never beaten Baltimore.
Kickoff is set for 11am MST.
