With their season beginning to slip away, Green Bay travels to one of the only two undefeated teams left in the NFL.

Through the first five weeks of 2012, the Texans, one of only two unbeaten teams left, have looked like the best team in the NFL.

The Packers were the best team through most of the regular season last year, but after going 15-1 in 2011, they'll be fighting for their lives on Sunday when they travel to Houston.

The Texans are an incredibly balanced team, with one of the NFL's best defenses as well as a dynamic offense that features Arian Foster and Andre Johnson.

However, they'll be without star LB Brian Cushing, who tore his ACL in the second quarter of their Monday night victory over the Jets.

Green Bay, though, may have a difficult time taking advantage of his absence, as Aaron Rodgers has the highest rushing average on the team.

Two years after winning the Super Bowl, they've become a one-dimensional team that struggles to run, stop the run and stop the pass and defense on Rodgers and the passing game to bail them out. However, their offensive line has struggled to hold up this season, which could be an issue against a Texans pass rush led by JJ Watt, who leads the NFL in sacks.
