Jordy Nelson caught his third touchdown pass of the game to put Green Bay up 28-10, but it was two Texans penalties that set up the touchdown. Houston appeared to have forced Green Bay to settle for a field goal, but Connor Barwin was flagged for leaping on the field goal attempt, giving Green Bay an automatic first down.
Houston once again forced Green Bay into a fourth down, but Texans' safety Danieal Manning was flagged for unnecessary roughness following the third-down play, giving the Packers another penalty first down. Aaron Rodgers hit Nelson two plays later and Green Bay extended its lead.
Texans penalties becoming Packers points has become a consistent theme in this game. Houston lined up offsides on Green Bay's punt attempt following its first drive. The Packers took advantage then too, with Rodgers finding Nelson for a 41-yard touchdown on the next play.
