That the Houston Texans would drop to 1-6 after facing the NFC contender Green Bay Packers may have been one of Week 7’s foregone conclusions. However, the sting certainly remains all the same for Houston fans.

Veterans such as inside linebacker Zach Cunningham, running back David Johnson, receiver Brandin Cooks, outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus occupy massive amounts of the salary cap.
