    A lot of the packers fans on message boards i am seeing are saying how we "barely" got past the low jets. Well correct me if i am wrong but didnt they just lose to the Colts......

    Hmmm i am going to say

    Texans 34

    Packers 20

    AJ goes over 120 yards and 2 TDs

    I think our poor game against the Jets will get the team re-focused for the Packers.

    I think the Packers wheels are getting shaky but can't discount Rodgers.

    Give me the good guys 22 - 17.

    Predictions subject to change as I freak out later in the week. :scarygirl:

    Might have to score 40 to win this one .... Then again , GB cant protect Rodgers .... he may leave early with a dirty tampon.

    27-20 Texans....... Packers give us a great battle, but we hold on late and make enough plays to get a W.

    Yes, the Packers did just lose to the Colts, and they probably still can't believe it. That is one reason why I expect the Packers to pull an upset and win on Sunday night.

    While this is not the same team that won the Super Bowl two years ago, they still have some talent and a lot of pride, and they need the win more than we do. It is from the position of having their backs against the wall that the Giants turned their season around last year when no one expected it. I think that the Packers are still a dangerous team. Especially now.

    Also, I think that our defense will be both weakened in talent and emotionally down because of Cush. Their will be several new Texans players in the mix on Sunday on defense and special teams, which will be an opportunity for the Packers' to exploit.

    Cushing is going to prove to be a big loss to the team this season, and unfortunately it's happened on the cusp of playing the Packers, Ravens, Bears and Patriots.

    I hope I'm wrong, but I think the Packers win a close one. They're backs are to the wall and this is essentially a must win for them. My guess is Packers 27 Texans 24.

    Packers have given up 21 sacks this year so far, I predict JJ will hang 2 more on them this week and Rodgers will be on his back at least 4 times. Also predict AJ breaks 10,000 yards and Foster rushes for 122 yards on 22 carries.

    I have a feeling Packers win this since they just lost, then again our team should be fired up by the loss of Cushing and make our D play harder to win it for their leader. If JJo gets lit up again, Rodgers is gon have a field day on that side.

    Texans come out fired up for two reasons:

    1) First every SNF on NBC. Reliant will be rockin!!

    2) "Win it for Cush!". Defense plays with a chip on their shoulder.

    Watt goes all Hulk on Rodgers Loki:

    Me too. I'm starting Jones, Crosby, & the GB defense this week.


    This bye week is killing me.

    That wouldnt hurt my feelings too much ... pending they beat the Ravens the following week. That game is much more important in the grand scheme anyway.

    Honestly, if this team isn't good enough to beat the current Packer team at home after they've just been beaten by indy -- then we really will get smoked when we have to play Chicago on the road or New England on the road.

    The 2012 Texans should cover -- regardless!

    I'm beginning to think we genuinely believe we're going 16-0

    On my pre-season schedule release, I (and I'm not kidding), I had the Texans 5-0 losing our first game at home to the Packers!



    Lord..... I'm looking upward, prove me wrong.

    We will win again.

    (1) We're playing at home, and (2) Dobbins is worthy of the chance he is getting, and (3) there's just bad mojo going on with the Packers' offense.

    Oh yeah, Packers suddenly don't have a good RB either. Which means the D can pin their ears back and go after Rodgers who has spent more time on his back than a Bill Clinton intern.

    I think a lot of posters are figuring that the Texans, since they looked human vs. the Jets AND lost Cushing, coupled with how desperate the Packers will be, are thinking this is the week we notch our first loss. Not me.

    I don't think the Packers have the horses to get it done. I might even think that a dime defense would do the trick vs. Rodgers. That's right: Stack the secondary and make Rodgers suffer vs. our DTs and OLBs all night. They don't have a run game to keep us honest, folks. Think about it.

    Maybe this is a case where you can get some of those "non-believers" to join you in prayer. :kitten:

    I predict an awesome nail-biter game.
