Packers Offense comes alive in the 4th; Packers 21 Texans 13 


The Packers defeated the Texans 21-13 in a defensive, snowy game at Lambeau. The Packers are now on a 2 game win streak as they handed the Texans their 3rd straight loss. 

It looked like it would be a defensive game early on as the Packers were only up 7-0 at half after a 9 yard touchdown pass to Cobb. Houston tied the game on their next drive after a 6 yard touchdown pass to TE Ryan Griffin. The Packers offense finally came alive in the 4th quarter when WR Jordy Nelson caught a 32 yard touchdown pass. FB Aaron Ripkowski scored his second career and 2nd consecutive touchdown in 2 weeks to extend the Packers lead to 14. The Texans stayed alive late in the 4th when WR DeAndre Hopkins caught a 44 yard touchdown pass to bring the Texans within 8 with 1:51 remaining. However kicker Nick Novak missed the PAT to make it a 8 score game. The Packers recovered the Texans onside kick to run the clock down to 4 seconds. The Texans tried to score on the last play of the game, but were stopped to end the game.
