Packers vs. Texans Final Score: Houston Falls 42-24

The Atlanta Falcons are now the only team left that can challenge the 1972 Miami Dolphins' undefeated record after the Green Bay Packers beat the Houston texans 42-24 Sunday night. It was the first ever NBC broadcast game for the Texans in franchise history, but Aaron Rodgers stole the show with six touchdown passes and 338 yards passing.

Rodgers threw two of his touchdown passes early in the fourth quarter to break open a 28-17 game. Rodgers hit Tom Crabtree for a 48 yard score, then found James Jones for an 18 yard score after Sam Shields intercepted Matt Schaub.

Houston would add a late touchdown when Devier Posey recovered a blocked punt, but that was all Houston could muster in the final period.

Jordy Nelson caught nine passes for 121 yards and three touchdowns for Green Bay. Jones also had three catches for 33 yards and two scores. Randall Cobb caught seven passes for 102 yards.

Arian Foster rushed for two touchdowns, but only had 29 yards on 17 carries.
