Green Bay is on the road for the second straight week, trying to put back the pieces after a 38-10 thumping at the hands of the Buccaneers last week. The Packers were blown out even coming in off their bye week.
Houston let one get away last week as well, albeit in much closer fashion falling 42-36 in OT at Tennessee. Much was made of Romeo Crennel’s decision to go for two at the end of the Titans game instead of going up 8 points late in the 4th.
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay looked to be their high-functioning selves last week against Tampa Bay, storming out to a 10-0 lead. Tom Brady led the Bucs to 38 straight points though, and now the Packers have questions on both sides of the ball.
Aaron Rodgers was just 16/35 vs. Tampa Bay, and threw his first two INTs of the season. A bigger concern is the fact that Rodgers was sacked 5 times by the Bucs, not good heading into a meeting with J.J. Watt and Houston.
The Green Bay defense also has some concerns heading into Sunday’s meeting in Houston. Brady was just 17/27 for 166 yards last week, but Tampa also rushed for 158 yards on 35 carries. The Packers defense has forced just 3 turnovers this year.
Green Bay did start off the season 4-0 however, and put up 30+ points in each of those wins. The Packers can put up points against the Texans’ #30 ranked defense in yards allowed.
Houston is going to come into Sunday’s game angry after getting bowled over by the Titans last week. Derrick Henry ran over the Texans defense last week for 212 yards, part of 263 rushing yards for Tennessee.
Make no mistake, the Texans defense was also routed through the air by the Titans with Ryan Tannehill going 30/41 for 364 yards and 4 TD. Houston is now dead last in rushing defense, and is 21st in passing defense.
The bright spot for Houston coming into this meeting is that they have the offense to match up with Green Bay. Deshaun Watson gave the Texans a 36-29 lead last with with 1:50 to play, but the defense didn’t hold up their end of the bargain.
The Texans defense blew a great opportunity to go 2-0 under coach Romeo Crennel, who took over when Bill O’Brien was fired. The Texans have the #3 pass offense in the league, but are second worst in rushing.

Green Bay was exploited last week, and going on the road for a second straight game isn’t going to do them any favors. Houston has the front four to put the same type of pressure on Rodgers that Tampa Bay did.
