Houston Texans vs Green Bay Packers Prediction

Coming into this game, both teams are looking for some redemption. The Buccaneers completely stopped Rodgers and the offense, while the Packers defense could not stop Brady and company. As for the Texans, they allowed zero points for the Titans in the third quarter, only to allow them to come back in the 4th quarter to tie it up and lose in overtime.

It's tough to say who will win this game considering the Packers' performance against the Buccaneers. Then again, the Texans defense has not been the best this season so far. Rodgers should be able to have himself a good day against the Texans' secondary, but it'll all come down to whether his offensive line can keep the defensive line away from him.

Prediction: Packers win in a close but entertaining game.
