2020 Long Island EFL Week#2 Baltimore Ravens (1-0) vs. Houston Texans (0-1)

Recommended Posts




August 19, 2020. Houston, Texas. For Houston Texans Coach Levi Vick this season has been hard on his team.  "We have the talent, we just need the defense," said Vick.  One sure thing for this team is running back Ron Dayne, a terrific blue-collar workhorse for the Texans. But, he can't act alone.  He needs Vick to build on this team.  With great blocking Dayne is unstoppable.  The Texans have been a very consistent team in the Long Island Electric Football League. In their five years in the league Vick has been to the playoffs three times, one of them an AFC Championship Game against the Buffalo Bills in 2017, when the Bills won, 43-26. The Baltimore Ravens are a team on the rise. Coach Johhny Freeport-Chucker" Lafromboise always has lots to say for his rising Ravens. The Chucker said, "Be careful because we will be here for the entire game and I am ready with my Ravens. With return specialist Derrick Mason, how can I go wrong?"

On the opening kickoff a ready Houston Texans running back speedy Ron Dayne, returned the ball 60-yards to the Baltimore 40 yard-line. Ravens tackle J'von Parker made a hard hit on Dayne. Parker had three tackles on the first three plays, blasting through the line of the Houston Texans to the Baltimore Raven 30-yard line chasing the speedy Dayne and tackling him in the backfield for the loss. The Raven defense came up big on third down stopping the Texans again, this time at the Texans 45-yard line pushing them back for a loss of 25-yards from where they originally started. Dayne and the Texans got stuffed by Tony the "Goose" Siragusa  on third down, forcing the Texans to kick a field-goal making the score 3-0, Texans with 4:55 left to go in the half!

The Baltimore Ravens have been dangerous on special teams. On the ensuing kick-return LIEFL All-Pro Derrick Mason, exploded slicing through the middle of the field with an electrifying hundred-yard return for a touchdown giving the Baltimore Ravens the lead, 7-3!
Houston's Ron Dayne was not about to be outdone by Mason as Dayne ran back a sensational hundred yard touchdown run to put the Texans ahead 10-7, in a very exciting match-up with 2:55 left to go in the half!
The battle for special teams wasn't over! Derrick Mason returned the ball 60-yards to the Houston 40 yard-line and on first down Jamal Lewis exploded for a 17-yard pick-up to the Houston 28 yard line! This trench game was getting brutal as Houston's Brandon Frye hit Jamal Lewis so hard he was knocked over at the 24 yard line of the Texans on second down at 13:31 left to go in the game in an intense war.
The two coaches put two extreme teams on the board who were hitting hard. The speed of the game a few times was hard to follow that's how fast the board was running.
On one run, three players were knocked down and we have never seen that before in any game. Energy is great in electric football. With the score 14-10, in favor of Baltimore, the Texans Ron Dayne returned a 46 yard kick return. One play later powerful tight end Ryan Griffin caught a pass for a 16-yard first down to the Baltimore 28-yard line with 10 seconds left in the game as time ran out on the Texans. Houston was forced to kick a field-goal with the Ravens ahead 14-10, as they ran out of time on one last catch by Griffin again for 19-yards as the Ravens win on the road 14-13 in a tremendous finish! The Chucker said, "As I said, I am a winner. Vick can't stop me." Vick had no comments. 
The Texans are in a very difficult spot at (0-2). They play Pittsburgh (1-1) on the road next week and then Minnesota at home in Week #4.  On a positive note Ron Dayne isn't slowing down. He finished with 216 total yards today with a touchdown.  The Chucker's Ravens are home against Kansas City who just lost in a heart-breaker 20-14 in OT to the Chargers.
