The Green Bay Packers need to bounce back after a horrible loss in Indianapolis last week, but their next rival could easily be the best team in the NFL. Reliant Stadium awaits for the tremendous matchup of Packers vs Texans this Sunday night at 8:20 PM ET.
Green Bay had everything ready to have a win in Indy, but they got too comfortable and let an 18 point lead slip away. “We’ve got to win the next one. We’ve put ourselves in a hole,” safety Charles Woodson said. “The only thing you can hang your hat on is that it’s still early in the season, and you’ve got a long way to go”.
“We’re a focused football team; we’re just not playing to the level that we want to play at right now,” McCarthy said. “That’s what we have to stay focused on. We have to stay focused on our habits, our discipline, our preparation, the process leading up to Sunday night”.
Houston is one of the two teams unbeaten in the season, but they lost their linebacker Brian Cushing last week, and suddenly things look different for them.
“A big blow for our team,” Kubiak said. “We have to have guys pick it up around him, and we’ve got to find a way to move forward”.
“It’s a challenge for our team, that’s what this is,” Kubiak said. “We know Dobbins is going to go in there and play well, and every player in our locker room is going to take on a little bit more responsibility”.
If the Texans want to be consider as a legitimate contender, this is a game they must win.
