Packers Pull Away Late from Texans in 21-13 Win to Improve to 6-6

Houston Texans v Green Bay Packers

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

The Packers (6-6) weathered snowy conditions at Lambeau Field, making just enough plays on the cold turf to even their record for the first time since they were 4-4 after losing to Indianapolis on Nov. 6.

“Well, that was a good bad-weather win. A lot of fun to play in that type of atmosphere in Lambeau Field,” coach Mike McCarthy said.

Brock Osweiler connected with DeAndre Hopkins for a 44-yard touchdown pass with 1:51 left to get within eight for Houston. Nick Novak missed the extra point, with footing slippery at Lambeau.

The Texans (6-6) had one last shot after the Packers failed to run out the clock. But Osweiler’s last-ditch pass-and-lateral play from Houston’s 12 with 4 seconds left failed, handing Houston its third straight loss.
