Packers vs. Texans: Game time, TV schedule and radio info

The Green Bay Packers can jump-start their season with an upset win over the Houston Texans.

Update: Game report - Packers 42-24 Texans, final score.

The Green Bay Packers' season isn't over if they lose on Sunday, even with a 2-4 record, but they'll go from huge disappointments to playoff favorites if they can pull off an upset victory in Houston on Sunday Night Football. The Houston Texans are arguably the best team in the NFL at the moment, and most expect them to win. They opened as 2 1/2 point favorites over Green Bay, and the line has moved to 3 or 3 1/2 points, depending on where you look.

That moving line comes despite Houston's loss of one of their defensive stars, linebacker Brian Cushing. His versatility and hard-hitting nature has helped Houston minimize the damage that slot receivers and tight ends could do to them over the middle, in addition to his fantastic skills as a run stopper. Without him in the game, Alex Green and Randall Cobb (and whoever plays tight end) will have a chance to make an impact on the game.

Of course, there's still the problem of the Packers' offensive line, and J.J. Watt will terrorize them for the entire game. Watt was one of my favorite Badgers ever and he's one of my favorite non-Packers in the NFL, but I don't think I'll like him very much tonight. Expect him to put Aaron Rodgers into the turf at least once.

We're still waiting on news about the status of Jermichael Finley, D.J. Williams, B.J. Raji and Davon House. All are listed as questionable. Greg Jennings will sit out for another game.
