The Houston Texans are one of the only two teams in the NFL who have yet to lose a game this season, and are also the team that the Packers will meet Sunday night. Tragic? I should say not.
The Packers do have to make the road trip down to Houston which does not help the situation by any means, but there is no reason to think that the Texans are unbeatable. And here’s why.
They only beat the New York Jets last week by 6. We all know that the Jets have had their struggles this year, there is no denying that. Between all of the hype and publicity they have received because of Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow, Rex Ryan, and the rest of the gang, their disaster of a season has not gone unseen. Nothing against the Jets, I think Rex Ryan is absolutely hysterical and Tim Tebow is awesome, but let’s be real here. If the Texans could only win by 6 against the 2-3 New York Jets, please tell me why Green Bay couldn’t have a chance at winning.
Stop Arian Foster. It’s quite obvious that Arian Foster is having, well, the best season ever, but….if they can stop him, then it’s smooth sailing. It’s not been decided yet if B.J. Raji will be participating in Sunday’s game or not, but if not it will have to be left up to the other guys on the line. With 132 carries this season already, it’s not going to be easy to stop Foster, but they can get it done. Mike Spofford of packers.com said that Foster is the Packers key target for Sunday night’s game according to Head Coach Mike McCarthy.
Faith in your team. I’m a firm believer in having faith in your team, and believing that they can face whatever challenge or team lies in front of them. If you go into thinking that your team can’t win, then maybe the won’t. Have the mind set that they can, and many times they will.
Plus, I know for me, when I watch the Packers play, I expect them to win. I always go into it thinking they have the advantage, no matter what team they’re facing. But, maybe I’m a little biased too.
Week 6, here we come. GO PACK GO!
