NFL : Green Bay beat Houston 42-24 - The Pack are back!
Rodgers, the reigning MVP set a career high with six touchdown passes and the Packers played their best game of the season in dominating Houston. Rodgers completed 24 of 37 passes for 338 yards, 6TDs and no picks.
Jordy Nelson caught three touchdown passes and James Jones had two, including a diving one-handed catch in the 4th quarter for the Packers.
Tom Crabtree had the other TD, a 48-yard catch that Rodgers threw just before taking a hit from Texans' outside linebacker Brooks Reed.
The Packers sill have plenty to do - they're just 3-3 and site behind the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North - but it was a very solid performance against the AFC's best with Houston leading the AFC South at 5-1, and it shows that Green bay have the weapons to beat any side.
