Snowy Sunday at Lambeau Field: Green Bay Packers WIN vs. Houston Texans, 21-13
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. 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!
