Week 7: at Houston Texans

This will be Green Bay’s fourth road game of the season despite only having played two at home. However, the Houston Texans have been #notgood to start the season. Maybe a change at head coach is just what they needed after picking up their first win of the year this past week. That said, it was against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The biggest concern for the home team here is their defense. Houston enters Week 6 ranked 22nd in total defense, giving up 387 yards per game. The Texans have the third-worst run defense, giving up 160.4 yards per game on the ground. None of that is good news with Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones, and Davante Adams coming to town.

However, this is anything but an easy game.

Deshaun Watson is one of the league’s best quarterbacks and he’s talented enough to lead the Texans offense up and down the field. David Johnson has also been a solid addition to the Texans offense this season.

However, nothing so far this season has suggested the Texans defense will be able to stop the Packers offense. Giving up 28 points per game, they could be in for a long afternoon up against Rodgers.

The Packers maintain their perfect start to the season with another impressive victory on the road.

Prediction: Green Bay 35, Houston 24 (6-0)
