HOUSTON (AP) - After sailing through five games with a perfect record, the first setback for the Houston Texans came in stunning fashion.
The Green Bay Packers controlled every aspect of a 42-24 blowout win that exposed a bevy of problems Houston has to fix quickly before Sunday's game against Baltimore, a team that has beaten the Texans three times in the past two seasons.
Coach Gary Kubiak says the Texans have to be better "across the board" if they expect to beat the Ravens, who improved to 6-0 against Houston with a win in the second round of the playoffs last season.
Though Kubiak has challenged every member of the team to improve this week, his biggest concerns are special teams, the running game and protecting quarterback Matt Schaub.
