How to watch or listen to the Packers in Week 7.

Aiming to bounce back from last week’s big defeat, the Green Bay Packers remain on the road as they take on the struggling Houston Texans.

Despite the Texans’ record, this is no easy game for the Packers. Before the season started, this is one that was looked at as one of the toughest matchups on the schedule. The same was true when the Packers played the Los Angeles Chargers last season.

Ahead of the game, here’s everything you need to know:

Date: Sunday, Oct. 25
Kickoff time: 12:00 p.m. CT
Location: Houston, TX
Stadium: NRG Stadium
TV channel: FOX
Radio: WTMJ Milwaukee/WIXX Green Bay
Live stream: Live Stream, fuboTV

To make this matchup even tougher for Green Bay, it will potentially be without a few key players. With left tackle David Bakhtiari, cornerback Kevin King, and safety Darnell Savage all doubtful to play, Matt LaFleur will need to do some reshuffling at important positions on both sides of the ball.

It’s also possible the Packers will be without running back Aaron Jones, edge rusher Preston Smith, center Corey Linsley, and tight end Robert Tonyan.

Not ideal.

Even so, the Packers should be able to run the football, even if Jones misses the game. They should still be able to protect the quarterback and open running lanes, even if Bakhtiari and Linsley are out. I’m not so sure they’ll be able to cover the Texans receivers without King and Savage (with the exception of who Jaire Alexander matches up with).

Despite that, Green Bay should be good enough to win this game. And victory here is exactly what this team needs to put last week’s performance to the back of the mind.

What’s your prediction for Week 7? Will Green Bay bounce back?
