Starting a rookie quarterback and first-year head coach, the Texans competed and were only down 7-6 at the end of the first half.
The Ravens scored 15 points in the third quarter and sacked C.J. Stroud five times en route to victory, with a huge matchup against the Bengals looming.
Here are the studs and duds from Week 1.
Stud -- Lamar Jackson
Jackson led the team with 38 rushing yards on six carries, but he was also extremely efficient as a passer.
Jackson was 17-22 passing, for 169 yards and one interception, while finishing with a 79.5 rating.
Stud -- Zay Flowers
The rookie wide receiver was dynamic from the start, logging 9 catches for 78 yards in his debut.
Dud--Iasiah Likely/Charlie Kolar
Playing in relief of an injured Mark Andrews, Ravens tight ends combined to catch one pass for four-yards on one target.

Stud --Brandon Stephens
The versatile defensive back started at cornerback and logged 12 tackles on the afternoon.
The former LSU linebacker logged 11 tackles, one sack, one tackle for loss, one pass defended and one quarterback hit.
The second-year pass rusher was disruptive on the afternoon, logging three tackles, one sack and one quarterback hit.
The running back had nine yards on eight carries, but Hill scored two rushing touchdowns on the afternoon, offsetting the lack of yardage.
