NFL Week 12: Ravens Vs. Texans By The Numbers

November 24, 2017
The Ravens host the Houston Texans Monday, Nov. 27, in just their second home Monday night game since 2007. Eleven of the Ravens' past 12 Monday night appearances have been on the road, a scheduling quirk that has drawn criticism in the past from owner Steve Bisciotti and head coach John Harbaugh. 

In prime time at home, the Ravens have thrived. They have won nine straight prime-time home games, the longest such streak in the league. That includes a 40-0 win against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Oct. 26, this season. 

"'Monday Night Football' is a lot of fun, and we've been in a lot of stadiums  ... with the opposing crowd rocking," Harbaugh said. "I'm looking forward to seeing our crowd in there shaking the place up a little bit. It should be fun."

Here are a few other key numbers as the Ravens (5-5) prepare to face the Texans (4-6) and try to climb back above .500 for the first time since Week 5: 

0: Snaps at Green Bay for wide receiver Breshad Perriman, who was a healthy game-day inactive for the first time in his career. The former first-round draft pick has just seven catches for 54 yards this season. The benching was a "reset" for Perriman, Harbaugh said. "He's a young player, gets a chance to take a breath, and he'll be back."

1: Number of home games for the Ravens in their last 12 appearances on "Monday Night Football." The Ravens hosted the Cincinnati Bengals Sept. 10, 2012, which is their only home Monday night game since Dec. 3, 2007. Overall, the Ravens are 11-11 on Monday nights. 

3: Shutouts this season for the Ravens, including a 23-0 win against the Packers at Lambeau Field Nov. 19. That is one shy of the franchise record set by the 2000 Super Bowl team. The Ravens have 13 shutouts in franchise history, the most in the league since 1996, when the Ravens came into existence.

5: Sacks in the past five games for outside linebacker Matthew Judon, including two at Green Bay. Judon finished the Packers game with seven tackles, two sacks, two other tackles for losses and a forced fumble. "I think Matt Judon had a phenomenal game, one of the best I've seen," linebacker Terrell Suggs said.

6: Games started for the Houston Texans by Ravens backup quarterback Ryan Mallett in 2014-15. The Texans were 2-4 in those games. Mallett, originally a third-round draft pick of the New England Patriots, was traded to the Texans in August 2014. He started two games for the Texans that year and four in 2015 but was cut in midseason. The Ravens signed him in December 2015.

14.7: Average, in yards, of punt returns by Michael Campanaro this season, which ranks first in the AFC and second in the league behind Jamal Agnew of the Detroit Lions (16.8). Campanaro, who had a 77-yard punt return touchdown against the Chicago Bears, had a 28-yard return against the Packers last week that set up a field goal.

23: Takeaways by the Ravens this season, which is tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars for the most in the league. The Ravens total includes a league-high 16 interceptions and seven fumble recoveries. Their plus-8 turnover differential is tied for third-best in the league.

24: Punts inside the 20-yard line this year by Sam Koch, which leads the league. Against the Packers last week, Koch dropped three punts inside the 10-yard line in the fourth quarter, and another punt that was ruled a touchback appeared to have rolled dead inside the 1-yard line.
 
27: Snaps played against the Packers last week by cornerback Brandon Carr, by far his fewest of the season, as the Ravens increasingly turned to rookie first-round pick Marlon Humphrey. "In my mind we have three starters" with Carr, Humphrey and Jimmy Smith, Harbaugh said after the game. Carr has also moved at times inside to play the slot, but Maurice Canady, back from IR, is getting time there as well. 

207: Career games played by linebacker Terrell Suggs. Assuming he plays Monday night, Suggs will pass Matt Stover for second place on the Ravens' all-time list. Ray Lewis holds the franchise record with 228.
