Monday’s win at Philadelphia extended the Green Bay Packers’ season by at least one more week, but they enter another must-win game with the Houston Texans.
Houston enters Lambeau Field atop the AFC South, searching to strengthen their grip on a playoff place. Green Bay must win to have any hope of regaining the NFC North crown and continuing an impressive postseason streak.
The Texans win with defense, despite boasting a number of talented skill players on offense. Poor quarterback play has capped their success on that side of the ball, but they have pulled through to win six of 11 games this year. A seventh would go a long way in the competitive AFC South.
What will it take for the Packers to win for the second straight week? Having lost five of their previous six before winning at Philly, nobody is taking anything for granted, even at Lambeau Field.
Green Bay has already dropped two of three games against AFC South opponents, losses to Indianapolis and Tennessee following a Week 1 win at Jacksonville.
How can the Packers ensure a third defeat by this division doesn’t follow? Here’s five keys to beating the Texans.
