Week 16: at Houston Texans
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Neither Justin Forsett (16/48/0 rushing with 1/-1/0 receiving) or Bernard Pierce (6/37/0 rushing) were able to pierce the Jaguars' defensive front for a TD last weekend. Two weeks ago, Forsett posted 13/71/1 rushing with 2/7/0 receiving at Miami, followed by Pierce (3/50/0 rushing) on the way to 31/183/2 rushing for the Ravens down in Southern Florida (Joe Flacco added 7/16/1 to he rushing effor that day). Forsett remains the lead back in this attack, but he needs to crank up the volume on his carries/receptions during Week 16 if he's going to retain his lead on Pierce.
The Texans' D averages 109.1 rushing yards allowed per game (14th in he NFL) but they are stubborn at the goal line with six allowed over 14 contests. However, this weekend either journeyman Case Keenum or third-stringer Thad Lewis will start for the Texans, which may force the defense to stay on the field for a lot longer than usual. Indianapolis was right on the usual pace last weekend with 28/110/0 rushing posted on the Ravens.
Forsett has a good matchup for rushing yards, but finding pay dirt is more of a chore than usual against the Ravens. We give the Ravens' runners a slight edge in this game.
