NFL Schedule 2012: Houston Texans in national spotlight again

The undefeated Houston Texans get their toughest test of the season against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football.

Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

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.
