Houston Texans endured a tough start to their 2020 NFL season as they suffered a 20-34 loss at the hands of the reigning champions, Kansas City Chiefs, on opening day.
In contrast, the Baltimore Ravens marched their way to a commanding 38-6 triumph over a lackluster Cleveland Browns last weekend. Both these teams are slated to face-off on Monday at the NRG Stadium.
The Texans displayed flashes of brilliance against the Chiefs. However, they will need to up the ante if they intend to stop the rampant Lamar Jackson-led Ravens’ offense. Texans’ defensive end, JJ Watt, will be pivotal for the home team in this clash.
Here’s what NFL analysts said about Bill O’Brien’s team ahead of their Week Two encounter.

On the latest segment of FOX Bet Live, host Rachel Bonnetta was once again joined by analysts Todd Fuhrman, Clay Travis, and Cousin Sal. They spoke about the upcoming Week Two clash between the Houston Texans and the Baltimore Ravens.
Here’s what Todd Fuhrman said about the Texans’ chances heading into that tough encounter.
“I look at this Baltimore team and they’re going to find the ability to do what they want when they want against Houston Texans’ secondary which is absolutely dreadful…it tells you that when there is a huge talent mismatch, Bill O’Brien can’t get the best out of this particular football team.
“Deshaun Watson is always scary as an underdog but at the same time, the only thing working against the Ravens here would be a potential look-ahead to a primetime matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs.
“I don’t see it, I think Baltimore goes out there and wins this game convincingly,” Fuhrman said on the show earlier this week.
Ravens’ Head Coach, John Harbaugh, has transformed his team into a highly efficient attacking unit. Lamar Jackson’s dominance as a dual-threat is one of the biggest weapons in their arsenal.
The Texans will have to really pull together if they want to beat the Ravens on Sunday.
