2. Texans Schedule: Bring on Lamar Jackson and the Ravens

The most embarrassing loss in the regular season in 2019 came when the Texans were dominated by the Baltimore Ravens in a 41-7 loss, a game where they Texans had no fight in them and it showed.

The first quarter was fine for the Texans as they were tied at zero with Baltimore. Next showed why the Ravens were a dominate team last season when they outscored the Texans 14-0 in the second, 13-0 in the third, and then for good measure Baltimore added 14 more points in the fourth quarter, while the Texans scored their lone touchdown of the game.

This was the game where Lamar Jackson proved he was going to be the NFL MVP, finishing 17-of-24 for 222 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions.

The Texans have a lot to prove in the 2020 meeting because of the fact how the feeling was after the game last season. The Texans need to start winning these type of games against the very best teams in the regular season if they want to be a true contender when the playoffs arrive.
