GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers welcomed the Houston Texans to a snowy Lambeau Field on Sunday afternoon, December 4th.

Kickoff was set for noon.

The conditions on the field because of the snow made it a bit dicey for both teams.Β The Texans were first to cough up the ball — and the Packers’ Morgan Burnett snared it — and ran it to the Houston 24 yard line.

But within a matter of a few minutes, the Packers fumbled on a muffed snap — and gave up the ball to the Texans on the five yard line.

At 8:02 in the second quarter, the Packers scored first with a nine-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Randall Cobb (check out his endzone celebration below). It was Packers on top 7-0.

And that was it for the scoring in the first half.

In the second half, Houston was first to score — they tied the game 7-7 with 7:32 left in the third quarter.

The game was all tied up heading into the fourth quarter — but didn’t stay that way for long!

Early in the fourth quarter, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers found Jordy Nelson for a TOUCHDOWN!

The Packers then led the Texans 14-7.

The next score of the game came courtesy Packers’ Aaron Ripkowski — with a three-yard touchdown which brought the score to Packers 21, Texans 7 with 4:11 left in the game.

The Packers led the Texans by eight points after a missed extra point by the Texans after a touchdown catch by Texans’ wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

The score was then 21-13 — and that would be the final score — a Green Bay Packers WIN!

The Packers next face the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, December 11th at 3:25 p.m. It’s a game you’ll see ONLY ON FOX6!
