of years but it's been amazing. hopefully i keep doing it. a total team win for the ravens and we asked you what was most impressive about the win over houston. >> i was most impressed by the defense. holding them to nine points. >> actually d backs in the front defensive line, stopping the run and stopping the pass and the whole shut down that texas saw offense. >> the run by ross and ray man there. >> pressure we get from the front four. >> i like the interception. the defense certainly impressive. >> defense, defense stepped up. defense looked awesome. >> reporter: a lot to be impress with that ravens defense. but they will likely be without jacobi. he suffered a knee injury. unlikely cody will play but there's good news for ray rice who missed yesterday with a hip injury. rice was close to playing yesterday and is in the

affects safety i would rather not do it. >> reporter: now the faa does not have the authority to allow cell phones on airplanes because cell phones are actually regulated by the fcc and it has said that they interfere with cell phone towers on the ground. kai back to you. >> the council is expected to make its recommendation to the faa by the end of the month. if you're waiting for someone to get home from work let's check on the roads with parker shane at traffic control. >> reporter: hi kai. unusually heavy on the south side. on 295 and route 100 because of an accident that has been cleared. downtown heavy to laurel and some delays on 895 headed to the harbor tunnel. now if you're traveling on the topside interloop, as you cross over into delaney valley road you can see speeds of 18
