Call me crazy, but I think the Baltimore Ravens can be an easy win if all goes well for the Texans in their Week 3 matchup on the road.

While the Ravens did win Super Bowl XLVII in 2012, they are not going to be the same team going into the 2013 season.

The Ravens lost at least nine starters during the offseason including safety Ed Reed, who is now a member of the Texans.

The new look Ravens may need time before the team's new starters getting adjusted to one another in game-time situations.

I expect the Texans' offense to run circles around a defense that does not feature Ray Lewis or Ed Reed.

I also expect Ed Reed to know the Ravens' system well and the habits of his former teammate and Ravens' starting quarterback Joe Flacco.
