Consider the Green Bay Packers’ latest victory a testament to their depth. Two-time MVP Aaron Rodgers threw four touchdown passes and three-time Pro Bowl selection Davante Adams had a career-high 196 yards receiving. Several lesser-known players also came through to help the Packers overcome numerous injury-related absences.
J.J. Watt stalked the sideline, helmet in hand, scowl on his face as he watched his Houston Texans be dominated by the Green Bay Packers, a team he spent his childhood rooting for. The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year has been through a lot in his 10 years with the Texans, but Sunday might have been rock bottom. Aaron Rodgers threw for 283 yards and four touchdowns to lead Green Bay to a 35-20 win in a game where the Texans were thoroughly overmatched from the start.
Aaron Rodgers insisted that Green Bay's lackluster performance in its first loss of the season last week was an anomaly. “That game is an outlier I believe and today was more in line with our first four weeks," Rodgers said. Rodgers threw for 283 yards and four touchdowns and the Packers bounced back with the 35-20 victory.
