J.J. Watt will not make things easy for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers this week.

The Houston Texans have jumped out to a 5-0 start by defeating the likes of the Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans. It won’t be a cakewalk this week when the Green Bay Packers come to town.

The bitter taste of January’s NFC Championship loss to the New York Giants has fueled the San Francisco 49ers hot start. Scratch the loss to the Vikings and the Niners have taken out the Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions and NY Jets. In the last two weeks Jim Harbaugh’s crew has outscored their opponents 79-3. With another rocky start, we’re conducting our annual pulse check on the G-Men. Tom Coughlin never lets this squad get too high or too low. We’ll have a better read on things after Sunday’s matchup.

Byes: Bears, Jaguars, Panthers and Saints.
