Packers vs. Texans: Five key matchups

Posted Oct 12, 2012


1. Packers tackles vs. J.J. Watt and Brooks Reed—Watt and Reed are the Texans sack masters. Watt can take over a game, as he did last year’s playoff win over the Bengals, but don’t go to sleep on Reed. Getting those two players in last year’s draft was the difference-maker for the Texans.

2. Packers wide receivers vs. Texans corners—Get ready for some in-your-face press coverage, and Kareem Jackson and Jonathan Joseph can play it. The Texans have the NFL’s No. 4 pass defense. The Packers can’t win this game without winning on the outside.

3. Clay Matthews vs. Matt Schaub—Schaub’s pocket courage is underscored by the hit he took that knocked off his helmet and ripped off part of his ear in a win over Denver three weeks ago. Schaub runs from nothing. The good news for Matthews is he’ll know where Schaub is and he won’t have to go far to find him.

4. B.J. Raji’s ankle vs. Arian Foster—The Packers can’t afford to lose Raji in this game, as the Packers did against the Colts. Foster is the league’s second-leading rusher and Raji is the Packers’ best run-defender.

5. Nick Perry vs. Owen Daniels—Daniels is one of the most underrated tight ends in the game. When Schaub needs to make a play, he looks for Daniels. The Texans will likely try to isolate Daniels on Perry.
