The Houston Texans will try and stay undefeated this Sunday Night at 8:20 PM against the Green Bay Packers. The Texans have yet to be stopped and have been hailed as Super Bowl favorites from many. They have blended a perfect mix of rushing and passing while accompanying it with a very strong defensive output. They get after the quarterback and can cover as well as most teams in the league. They did just get a scare this past week as they narrowly slid by the Jets with a 23-17 win. They must make sure not to slip up against a team like the Packers or they could certainly see their first loss.
The Texans currently outgain the Packers by more than 30 yards a game while getting nearly 400 yards of total offense a game. 228 of that have come through the air while 143 yards have been rushed for on average on the ground. The Texans also score nearly 30 points a game. Defensively, they have been shoulders above the Packers as well with nearly 70 less yards given up a game. The Texans also only give up 14.6 points a game defensively.
Green Bay comes into the game with a 2-3 record and is coming off a tough loss on the road to the Colts who defeated them 30-27. The Packers biggest weakness has been the run game, and it seems that the Packers have finally been exposed because of this flaw. They may have finally realized that you can not survive in the NFL by just sitting back and passing play after play. Time will tell.
