Coming into the season, this was a must watch game with two elite quarterbacks. As we sit here in Week 7, the Houston Texans are 1-5 and have fired their head coach. On the other hand, the Green Bay Packers are contenders in the NFC.

All was right in Green Bay as they headed into Tampa Bay in Week 6. They were 4-0 and had the ball with a 10-0 lead over Tom Brady and the Bucs. Aaron Rodgers threw a pick six on that drive and the game completely turned. It ended with 38 unanswered points by the Bucs.

This was the first game of the season where Rodgers looked human but do not expect that to last.

Meanwhile in Houston, sometimes teams get a jolt once their coach is fired. Bill O’Brien was let go after a Week 4 loss. It was a long time coming after he completely ruined the roster for the Texans. The team responded by picking up their first win of the season then taking the Tennessee Titans to overtime in Week 6. There was just no answer for Derrick Henry as he rushed for 212 yards and two touchdowns.

Despite the records, this is a game with some entertaining players on both sides of the ball. Here are five bold predictions for this Week 7 matchup.
