The NFL schedule 2013 live stream and TV games arrive on Sunday, Sept. 22 with a plethora of matchups during the 1 p.m. EST time slot. Among them, the defending Super Bowl champions will host the Houston Texans, in a battle of two of the AFC's finest. The latest game featuring the Houston Texans vs. Baltimore Ravens will be presented by various sources for televised and live streaming NFL games.
An ESPN.com report from Sept. 22 indicates that Houston has been a team making comebacks in their previous games. They were down by 21 to the Chargers in their opener and escaped with a 31-28 victory. Just last weekend, they defeated the Tennessee Titans in overtime, 30-24. Coach Gary Kubiak said of his team:
"That's part of the NFL battle. We've got to get more consistent at what we're doing. We just didn't make any third downs. Third downs, they're the key to staying on the field and being balanced."
Texans left tackle Duane Brown will miss today's game with a toe injury. However, one bit of good news for Houston this week is that they may have wide receiver Andre Johnson back in the lineup. Johnson was layer out with a fourth-quarter hit by Bernard Pollard and suffered a concussion just last weekend. Pollard was fined $42,000 for the hit.
For the defending champions, they may be dealing with a tough injury in their lineup. Running back Ray Rice is considered doubtful for today's game with a strained left hip flexor. Rice left the game just last weekend during the Ravens' 14-6 victory over the Browns. Coach John Harbaugh said of the situation:
"We're a little bit nicked up. That's a challenge, but they're stepping up. You don't hear a word. They love to play, but it isn't easy."
The Texans come into this game at 2-0 on the season, while Baltimore is 1-1 after suffering an opening game defeat against the Denver Broncos. Today's spread favors the Texans, but only by a small margin. Various odds makers and sports books have Houston favored by anywhere from 1 to 2 1/2 points over the Ravens. The over/under is currently set at about 44 1/2.
