NFL Playoffs: Baltimore Ravens Lead Houston Texans, 17-13, At Halftime

The Baltimore Ravens are thirty minutes away from clinching a trip to New England for the AFC Championship Game. If the Ravens can hold on to their 17-13 halftime lead, they will face the Patriots at Gillette Stadium next weekend, but the game is far from over.

Texans rookie quarterback TJ Yates started the game off slow and showed his inexperience, but he seemed to find his groove later in the half. Running back Arian Foster got his wheels under him and has rolled for 95 first-half yards. Houston seems to have the momentum heading into the second half.

The Ravens benefited from a few early mistakes by the Texans and have failed to do anything since. The offense is out of sync and Joe Flacco is getting abused in the pocket. Can the Ravens find a spark and pick up their intensity for the second half or will they blow the lead they earned in the first-half? Tune in for the final 30 minutes to see who will face the Patriots next weekend.
