Green Bay @ Houston

Current Records: Green Bay 4-1; Houston 1-5

What to Know

The Green Bay Packers will hit the road for the second straight week as they head to NRG Stadium at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday. Each week has meant fewer and fewer points for the Packers in their past four games, so the Houston Texans might be catching them at a good time.

Green Bay suffered a grim 38-10 defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past Sunday. The last quarter was a mere formality since it was already 38-10 by the third quarter. QB Aaron Rodgers had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw two interceptions with only 4.57 yards per passing attempt.

Meanwhile, Houston fought the good fight in their overtime contest against the Tennessee Titans this past Sunday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 42-36. Despite the loss, the Texans got a solid performance out of QB Deshaun Watson, who passed for four TDs and 335 yards on 37 attempts. Watson’s 53-yard touchdown toss down the left side of the field to WR Will Fuller in the fourth quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the afternoon.

Green Bay is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread this past Sunday might want to keep in mind that the team has never dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

Both of these teams will be looking to put their recent losses behind them and walk away with a victory. Green Bay has been dynamite on the offensive side of the ball, averaging 32.40 points per game. We’ll see if Houston can find some way to disarm them.
