The defense is giving up big chunks of yardage - again. Injuries are piling up. Even the offense, which has carried the Green Bay Packers the last two years, is suspect.
A year after opening the season 13-0, the Packers are in danger of letting the season get away from them. At 2-3 (yes, that includes that loss in Seattle that wasn't really a loss), they face something of a must-win game Sunday night when they play the unbeaten Houston Texans.
''It's a bit too early'' to say that, defensive tackle B.J. Raji said. ''A lot of the talk - people are used to seeing us win, and they're never used to seeing us in this position. It's just human for most people to think it's a must-win game.
''It's a big one,'' Raji added. ''We want to have it, and hopefully we can come out with something good.''
