BALTIMORE (AP) — With J.K. Dobbins lost for the season because of a torn Achilles tendon, the Baltimore Ravens are again facing some major questions about their backfield.
That injury did not prevent them from opening the season with a double-digit win.
Justice Hill scored twice in the second half after Dobbins’ exit, and the Ravens pulled away for a 25-9 victory over Houston on Sunday. Baltimore managed only 265 total yards and Lamar Jackson turned the ball over twice, but the Ravens’ defense kept C.J. Stroud and the Texans out of the end zone.
Baltimore (1-0) looked out of sync for much of its first game with new offensive coordinator Todd Monken, and the Texans (0-1) kept it close for a half under new coach DeMeco Ryans. Stroud, a rookie making his first start, directed a couple of solid drives, but Houston couldn’t move the ball consistently enough.
UP NEXT: the Ravens face AFC North rival Cincinnati next Sunday in a rematch of their playoff loss to the Bengals last season.
