The Baltimore Ravens defeated the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round by the final score of 34-10, advancing to the team’s first AFC Championship game since they won the Super Bowl back in the 2012-2013 season. It took plenty of heart to beat Houston, especially after the way the first half ended for both sides.
“The locker room was good. I think everybody was kind of a little edgy. We were all a little edgy. I talked to [the players] last night. I don’t even know how we feel. None of us know how we feel. We’re excited for the opportunity, but we’re edgy, and we’re mad. We have a lot to prove, and I thought that was the feeling in the locker room at the game. Everybody just took a deep breath and said, ‘Alright, it’s 0-0. [We] gave up a big punt return, and it’s our game to go win. We have to go take it.'”
Baltimore went into halftime tied at 10 with the Texans after a string of plays went against them. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh described what the halftime locker room was like, calling it “a little edgy”, but said everyone took a deep breath and said it’s a tie game.
