Matt Schaub will be looking to lead his team to a franchise record 6th victory without a defeat. Already the this Texans team has begun faster than any other but Schaub is not taking anything for granted against a struggling Packers outfit that lost by three points against the Indianapolis Colts.
This could be a Super Bowl preview if the Packers can right the ship in time. Expect JJ Watt to act like it’s all second nature to him because folks, it is! It five games, Watt already has 32 tackles and 7.5 sacks while the overall defense is ranked first and has allowed fewer points than anyone in the league.
“You love the fanatical effort,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said. “The guy plays with his hair on fire. The size (6-5, 295), strength, athleticism — it’s rare to find a guy with that kind of combination. Obviously, if you have a vote for defensive player of the year, how do you not give it to that young man?”
Make no mistake, this is a must win for the Packers if they wish to stay in the Super Bowl conversation and WR Gregg Jennings knows there is a ton of pressure for him to perform.
“Now, it’s just a matter of being smart,” Jennings said. “I can’t keep having that up-and-down ‘I’m in one game, I’m out the next’ (or) ‘Not sure one game, good the next.’ I can’t keep doing that to myself or to the team. So, with that being said, I’m just going to wait until I get 100 percent back healthy, and then we’ll see (number) 85 back out there.”
