Texans vs. Packers preview:
The Texans fell to the Chargers on Sunday, 21-13, and are barely clinging to a lead in the AFC South. Brock Osweiler was awful, throwing for 246 yards and three interceptions. He's bad. He'll face the hilariously bad Packers secondary this Sunday, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him put up mediocre numbers once again. If he can't take advantage of the Packers revolving-door defense, the Texans will probably lose
The Packers got a crucial win Monday night, smacking the Eagles 27-13. Aaron Rodgers torched the Eagles secondary, going 30-of-39 for 313 yards and two touchdowns. With the entire offense depleted, it will be up to Aaron Rodgers to shoulder the entire scoring load, which he's shown he's more than capable of. If the defense can hold on for four quarters, Rodgers can put enough points on the board to pull out the victory.
Texans vs. Packers prediction:
The Packers take this game. They're at home, and they've got some momentum coming off of a nice win over the Eagles. Davante Adams is emerging as a true receiving threat, and I expect him and Rodgers to both have huge games as they pummel a Texans team unable to put points on the board.
