The Green Bay Packers evened their record at 3-3 with a 42-24 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw for six touchdowns during an offensive performance that was reminiscent of the 2011 season, and Tex Western of SB Nation's Acme Packing Company saw something different about Rodgers' body language during the game:
There was an edge to his game and to his body language that I haven't seen all season, and he channeled it into a marvelous performance.
Rodgers finished the day with 338 yards passing, making this the third time in 2012 that he has eclipsed the 300-yard passing mark. Both Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb had more than 100 yards receiving for Green Bay, and Nelson caught three touchdown passes.
Green Bay held a 21-10 lead at halftime, and the Texans were never able to pull within one possession during the second half. The Packers finished the game with 427 yards of offense, which is their highest total of the year.
The Packers return to the field in Week 7 against the St. Louis Rams.
