The Baltimore Ravens will try to continue their regular-season dominance in Week 2 over the Houston Texans. Here’s how you can watch the Ravens vs. Texans on your TV, as well as live streaming options.
After obliterating the Cleveland Browns in Week 1, Baltimore has won 13 straight regular-season games which is the longest active streak in the NFL. But they’ll get a tougher test in Deshaun Watson and Houston, who are looking to stop a potential early-season slide from happening.
One of the only controversies about the Ravens’ win vs. the Browns was Lamar Jackson playing into the fourth quarter despite leading by 32. Here is some of what David Ginsberg of the Associated Press wrote about why Jackson may be staying in that long a few more times this season.
Jackson is a quarterback who likes to run, and he doesn’t skip out of bounds if there’s extra yardage to be gained. The 2019 NFL MVP also will hang in the pocket while under pressure if his receiver needs another second or two to break free of coverage.
Jackson did all of those things Sunday against Cleveland, running for 45 yards and throwing for 275 yards and three touchdowns. Yet he was still taking snaps until Harbaugh finally kept him on the sideline when Baltimore’s offense entered with 4 minutes left and the Ravens ahead 38-6.
That was the same score with 10 minutes to go, but Harbaugh sent his quarterback onto the field, a move that was questioned Monday during a Zoom call with the coach.
“You look around the league, you’ll see that not too many people are taking their quarterbacks out with 10 minutes left in the game,” Harbaugh said. “That’s historically true. People who say that should be done, I’d have to disagree with that.”
Jackson is the most important player on the team, and his downfield sprints make him more susceptible to injury that most quarterbacks. Harbaugh understands this, but has no intention of making Jackson shelve the quality that makes him so much of a threat.
“Lamar does a great job of protecting himself. Every player out there is in a situation where you’re at risk,” Harbaugh reasoned. “You try to minimize it as much as you can, but you can’t run from it. You can’t play scared. You’ve got to play the game to win, Lamar does that.”
