Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Aaron Rodgers threw six touchdown passes and
Green Bay looked like the Packers of old with a 42-24 rout of the previously
unbeaten Houston Texans on Sunday night.
Rodgers completed 24-of-37 passes for 338 yards for the Packers (3-3), who
bounced back from a tough 30-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts last week.
Jordy Nelson caught nine passes for 121 yards and three touchdowns for Green
Bay, which racked up 427 yards of total offense. Randall Cobb hauled in seven
passes for 102 yards, James Jones caught a pair of TD passes and Tom Crabtree
hauled in two passes for 62 yards and a score.
Alex Green got the start at running back with Cedric Benson out with a left
foot injury. Green carried the ball 22 times for 65 yards.
Matt Schaub connected on 20-of-33 passes for 232 yards and two interceptions
for the Texans (5-1), who came into Sunday as one of the two remaining
undefeated teams in 2012. The Atlanta Falcons beat the Oakland Raiders earlier
Sunday to improve to 6-0.
Arian Foster carried the ball 17 times for 29 yards and two touchdowns for
Houston, which will welcome the Baltimore Ravens (5-1) to town next Sunday.
