At the beginning of the season, this was expected to be one of the top regular season games, considering both teams were supposed to be strong contenders. While the Texans are off to a 5-0 start, the Packers have been one of the biggest surprises so far this season with a 2-3 record.
Green Bay is in desperate need of a win, but it certainly won’t be easy against one of the league’s top defenses.
