The Green Bay Packers fell to the Houston Texans by a score of 26-7 on Saturday night in the preseason opener. Luckily, it was only an exhibition.
The Packers’ offense was forced to punt six times and totaled just 49 rushing yards on 21 attempts. Meanwhile, the run defense wasn’t able to pick up the slack as Green Bay surrendered 170 yards to the Texans’ ground attack.
The Packers sat most of their starters and escaped the first week of the preseason without any major injuries. That is a win in any NFL team’s book and is definitely one of the brighter takeaways from this matchup.
