Packers get back to .500, beat Texans 21-13

Aaron Rodgers threw for 209 yards and two touchdowns, and the Green Bay Packers pulled away from the Houston Texans with two fourth-quarter touchdowns for a 21-13 win Sunday to get back to .500.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

Despite a solid effort from their defense, the Texans dropped their third-straight game, losing 21-13 to the Packers. The defense held Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to one touchdown and 111 yards through three quarters, but could only keep the Texans in the game for so long. Houston quarterback Brock Osweiler finished 21-of-34 for 213 yards and two touchdowns, including a 44-yard touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins in the final minutes of the game. Now the 6-6 Texans are tied atop the division with the Tennessee Titans and have a big game against the Colts next week.

Off-schedule throw from Aaron Rodgers on the TD to Randall Cobb. Get outside of the pocket. Extend the play. That creates new throwing windows in the red zone. Packers up 7-0 on the Texans.
