The game apparently nobody gives a shit about.

Pretty much went as planned. Jacoby Jones' punt return debacle early in the game proved crucial, as most probably knew it would. What was going on in his head at that moment, I guess only he will ever know.

The Ravens had no turnovers and no penalties. The offense was ineffective. They only scored when the defense got a turnover, and they didn't have to go the length of the field.

All the same, no turnovers and no penalties is a pretty good recipe, though a hard one to repeat.

I think the Texans would have won that game had Matt Schuab been healthy.

Especially what we saw this weekend. Arguably the 2 best offenses this season have a case of the turnovers and loose. A mediocre offense with no turnovers win. Granted, the Defense of those teams makes a difference.

First time in Ravens franchise history that they had a turnover and penalty free game. Good time for it.
