Aaron Rodgers sliced and diced the Houston Texans defense for 6 touchdowns as the Green Bay Packers drubbed the Texans 42-24 on Sunday Night Football on SportsRadio 1340 The Fan. Texans defensive star, J.J. Watt, mocked Rodgers ‘Discount Double-Check’ celebration after a first quarter sack, but it was Rodgers and the Packers that had the last laugh.

The Packers were able to move the ball at-will offensively and on defense, they forced Arian Foster and Matt Schaub into unproductive performances. After the first quarter, the Packers had a 14-0 lead. They extended the lead to 21-10 after a half of play.

Rodgers went 24/37 passing for 338 yards and the previously mentioned 6 touchdowns. He was helped by the Packers running game. Alex Green rushed for 65 yards and helped keep the Texans defense off-balance. Jordy Nelson was Rodgers favorite target of the game. He caught 9 passes for 121 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Meanwhile, the Texans shot themselves in the foot with penalties and turnovers. Texans quarterback Matt Schaub threw 2 interceptions and no touchdowns, while T.J. Yates threw an interception of his own in mop-up duty. The Texans had 7 penalties for 69 yards. Two of the penalties were personal fouls that extended Packers drives and allowed them to score touchdowns.

With the win, the Packers are now (3-3) and in the hunt for a playoff spot in the NFC North. The Texans are now (5-1) and still in first place in the AFC South.
