Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire
The undefeated Houston Texans get their toughest test of the season against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football.
A week after showing the nation their undefeated team on Monday night, the 5-0 Houston Texans get the national spotlight again in Week 6, this time on Sunday night. The Texans host the 2-3 Green Bay Packers on NBC this weekend.
The Texans had perhaps their least-impressive game of the season Monday night against the Jets, but Houston still pulled off a 23-17 win. The Packers, meanwhile, probably didn't expect to need a win in Week 6 to get back to .500, but that's the position they find themselves in a week after a shocking loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
It'll be the Houston defense's first game after learning linebacker Brian Cushing is out for the season with a torn ACL.
Here's the rest of the Week 6 NFL slate. All times are CT:
Thursday, Oct. 11
Sunday, Oct. 14
Colts at Jets, noon, CBS
Packers at Texans, 7:20 p.m., NBC
Monday, Oct. 15
