Green Bay Packers at Houston Texans: Previews & Predictions

Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse more stories

The Houston Texans are 5-0 and set to play in their second primetime game in as many weeks, as the overachievers from the Lone Star State prepare to play host to one of the more underachieving teams of the season. 

Green Bay's 2-3 record on the season is...well, shocking. After finishing 2011 with only a single loss, the Packers have struggled to leave their mark on the opposition. Aaron Rodgers, who has clearly regressed from his reign of awesomeness from a year ago, has spent most of the season on his back. In three of his first five games, Rodgers has been sacked at least five times. 

Houston, meanwhile, has been getting it done with defense. J.J. Watt made a great push in the Week 5 Monday night game for his own Defensive Player of the Year campaign. And he's not alone: Connor Barwin and Brian Cushing have been holding their own in a front seven that saw Mario Williams and DeMeco Ryans leave in the offseason. And, oh by the way, Arian Foster is as close of a lock as any for 100 yards per game.
