James Jones caught two touchdown passes for the Packers (3-3). Tom Crabtree had the other one, a 48-yarder that Rodgers threw just before taking a hit from Houston linebacker Brooks Reed.

Rodgers completed 24 of 37 passes for 338 yards. He tied Matt Flynn's Packers single-game record for TD passes, set in last year's regular-season finale against the Detroit Lions.

The Texans (5-1) came in with the NFL's third-ranked defense. Arian Foster scored two touchdowns for Houston.
