The Baltimore Ravens extended their win streak to six games following a 41-7 win over the Houston Texans. The win improves the Ravens record to 8-2 giving them the second-best record in the AFC.

This is the second game in a row and the third time this season the Ravens have beaten a team by 30 points or more. A late fourth quarter rushing touchdown by the Texans prevented what would have been the first shutout win for the Ravens this season.

Lamar Jackson finished with 222 yards on 17/24 passing and four touchdowns adding 86 rushing yards on nine attempts continuing to make his case for why he should win the MVP award this season.

Ravens running back Gus Edwards finished with a season high 112 rushing yards on eight attempts and a touchdown. This was the fourth 100 yard rushing game for Edwards in his career and his first since December 16th last season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The defense for the Ravens had another great performance finishing with 10 QB hits, eight tackles for loss, a season high seven sacks and six passes defended. In addition, the defense also had an interception via Josh Bynes and a forced fumble via Matthew Judon.

The Ravens have not lost since September 29th when they lost to the Cleveland Browns. The loss at the time was the Ravens’ second straight following their first loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Next week, the Ravens will be on the road for a Monday Night Football matchup against the reigning NFC Champion Los Angeles Rams.
