Packers vs. Texas: Houston down 35-17 in early fourth quarter

Jordy Nelson and Aaron Rodgers have had a stellar night against the Texans so far. Nelson caught his third touchdown pass of the night, a one yard toss from Rodgers, with 8:22 left in the third quarter to put the Packers ahead, 28-10. Houston would later score a touchdown of its own to make it 28-17, but the Texans' undefeated start to the 2012 season is in danger entering the fourth quarter.

Arian Foster scored his second touchdown of the night with 21 seconds left in the quarter to close the gap. His second one-yard dive of the night capped a nine-play, 65-yard drive and made it a two possession game for Houston.

The momentum was short-lived, as Rodgers needed only three plays to get the score back. Rodgers' fifth touchdown pass of the night was a 48-yard bomb to Tom Crabtree to make it 35-17 in favor of Green Bay on the first play of the fourth quarter.
