    Green Bay went into Houston after losing a heartbreaker to the Colts last week. The Texans won the toss and elected to kickoff. Randall Cobb fielded the kick 2 yards deep in his own endzone and took it back 102 yards to start the game. The Texans wouldn't flinch and on the back of Arian Foster and short crossing routes took the ball methodically down the field. Matt Schaub hit Phillip Supernaw from 6 yards out. On the ensuing kickoff, Cobb fumbles and Troy Nolan picks it up and returns it 16 yards for the Score to put the Texans up 14-7. Rodgers wouldn't let the fumble derail the offense however. He hit Jordy Nelson and a broken tackle later, Nelson scores from 47 yards out to end the first quarter tied at 14.

    Both teams traded field goals in the second quarter to go into the half tied at 17.

    The Texans would field another long drive to start the third quarter. This time it was Foster punching it in from one yard out.

    The third would end with Green Bay driving. The fourth quarter was all Green Bay. Rodgers took advantage of a spread out defense and scampered in from 2 yards out to tie the game once again. The Packers defense made some much needed adjustments in the fourth quarter. They force a Matt Schaub interception and a few plays later, James Starks takes it in from 2 yards to give Green Bay the lead with a little over 3 minutes left in the game. On the Texans next series, they are driving deep in Green Bay territory but the defense comes up big once again forcing a fumble. Clay Matthews scoops the ball and returns it 71 yards to round out the scoring.

    Green Bay 38 @ Houston 24

    Green Bay's defense struggled all day but came up with three turnovers in the 4th quarter.
