Baltimore Ravens topples Houston 29-14
BALTIMORE (AP) - Joe Flacco threw for 305 yards and ran for a score, Billy Cundiff kicked five field goals, and the Baltimore Ravens pulled away to a 29-14 victory over the short-handed Houston Texans on Sunday.
The Ravens (4-1) did just enough on defense to earn their third straight win. Baltimore held Houston scoreless over the final 21 minutes and limited standout running back Arian Foster to 49 yards on 15 attempts.
Flacco had two turnovers, but he also had completions of 51 yards and 56 yards to put Cundiff in position to score. Cundiff connected from 43, 48, 25, 33 and 40 yards to tie a Ravens record for field goals in a game.
Flacco completed 20 of 33 passes and Anquan Boldin had eight catches for 132 yards.
Even though the Texans (3-3) were without wide receiver Andre Johnson and linebacker Mario Williams, they led briefly in the third quarter and trailed only 19-14 until a 4-yard touchdown run by Ricky Williams with 4:01 left.
