The Houston Texans defensive line will have a field day against Green Bay

For Green Bay, their offensive line has looked quite different since free agency began. Guard Lane Taylor is now with the Texans. There’s also Corey Linsley signing with the Los Angeles Chargers. David Bakhtiari is coming off of ACL surgery and rehab.

While the Packers kept Aaron Rodgers on his feet pretty well last year, that was with Linsley in the lineup. Taylor was a starter a few seasons ago but still played a good deal in his final seasons in Green Bay.

There will be plenty of opportunities for the Houston Texans to feast on this new offensive line. Defenses usually are a little bit ahead of offenses to start the season as it takes more time to coordinate an offense (due to timing, assignments, etc.).

I think Houston will get 3 sacks, one from each unit (1st/2nd/3rd team) that gets to play. Let the battle of trenches begin!
