Watson, Jackson set for showdown as Texans visit Ravens Sunday


A pair of first place teams led by dynamic quarterbacks go head-to-head Sunday in Baltimore.

The Houston Texans, with Deshaun Watson, are 6-3, lead the AFC South, and had won their last two games before last week's bye.

The Baltimore Ravens, led by Lamar Jackson, are 7-2, have won five straight, and handed the mighty New England Patriots their first loss of the season.

Those two forces collide Sunday in Baltimore.

As you'd expect, there's been a lot of pre-game hype for this one. And it all comes down to the two quarterbacks, Watson and Jackson. But if you think Watson is buying into the hype, think again.

"These are two good teams going head to head, aiming for the ultimate goal. We're just trying to get a W. That's the biggest thing. There's nothing more to it," Watson said on Wednesday.

Texans Coach Bill O'Brien says if you think the Ravens are just Jackson, think again.

"Lamar is a great player, but there's more to it. They have a lot of weapons on offense, and they are doing a good job," O'Brien said, adding that you can't fall asleep on Baltimore's defense.

Kickoff on Sunday is at Noon.
