Green Bay Packers and Houston Texans meet in Week 1 of the NFL Preseason 2021. This game will be held at Lambeau Field today, August 14 at 8:00 PM (ET). Here is all the related information about this NFL Preseason game including the preview, storylines, predictions, odds and how to watch in the US.
Last season it was basically the same for the Packers, they win the division, reach the conference final and lose the pass to the super bowl. It seems to be an endless cycle. This week the media were talking about the “departure” of Aaron Rodgers from the team, but for now nothing has been confirmed.
The Texans were a disappointment last season with 4 wins and 12 losses. But the NFL Preseason gives the Texans a chance to test out a couple of quarterbacks options, names still unknown, before the regular season begins.

Green Bay Packers vs Houston Texans: Storylines
Fans are wondering when the Green Bay Packers are going to win another super bowl. The last title was over 10 years ago (2010 Super Bowl XLV). The only remarkable thing about the Packers has been winning the last two divisional titles of 2019 and 2020.
Four years ago the Texans had a flashy couple of seasons. In 2018 and 2019 they won the AFC South despite starting those seasons with back-to-back losses. The numbers were good at the end of the seasons with 11-5 (2018) and 10-6 (2019).
Rodgers is not going to play the first game of the NFL Preseason 2021, the quarterback chosen (probably) to play against the Texans is Jordan Love. The Packers coach wants to take care of Rodgers before starting the regular season.
