2. Texans Hang Around Late

The Texans were done no favors by the NFL with their 2020 schedule. They began the season with the Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens, and Pittsburgh Steelers. Week 4 was a loss to the Minnesota Vikings before finally catching a break against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

It did not last long. After Jacksonville, they faced the Tennessee Titans and now the Packers. Three of their five losses have come by one score. The Texans have shown their ability to hang around in games like this. They have strong leaders like Watson and J.J. Watt to speak on and off the field. They will have their hands full in this one, but will be able to hang around.

This is not to say that they will pick up their second win in Week 7, but it will be close. Green Bay has opened as a 3.5-point favorite in this one. With the game being in Houston, expect the Texans to play well on their home field.
