Bottom line: the Texans are officially done, and will soon clean out their lockers.
"We knew what was coming," Ray Lewis, a Ravens linebacker, said. "This young team, they are so freakin' fiery. They've got so many great pieces over there. I just take my hat off to them, just simply for the way they came out and fought today."
Arian Foster, who rushed for 132 yards, cashed in on a one-yard TD to trim Houston's deficit to 17-13. Foster has a two-game total of 285 yards in the postseason, which is the most by any running back in NFL history in his first two playoff games.
That surpasses Dallas running back Duane Thomas' total of 278-yards in 1970.
Jones fumbled a punt that Baltimore eventually recovered following Danieal Manning's 60-yard kick off return in the early going. Yates' three interceptions were another factor in Houston's loss.
"A lot of chances that we hurt ourselves with turnovers," Yates said. "We gave them the ball and we gave them a chance to score points."
"We put in everything we had," J.J. Watt, a defensive end who led Houston with a career-high 12 tackles, said. "Every player on our team put everything he had into this game. It hurts to end it like that."
