Packers lead at halftime, 21-10

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on October 14, 2012 – 8:56 pm

HOUSTON–The Packers were clinging to a 21-10 lead at halftime of their game against the undefeated Houston Texans on Sunday night.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers led a resurgent passing game to arguably its best performance of the season, as Rodgers threw for 187 yards and three touchdowns against one of the top pass defenses in the league.

Rodgers opened the scoring with a 41-yard bomb to Jordy Nelson down the right sideline. The Packers increased their lead to 14-0 following a six-yard touchdown pass from Rodgers to James Jones late in the first quarter.

Houston cut its deficit to 14-7 when Arian Foster capped a nine-play, 80-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown run, but the Packers roared right back with a seven-play, 78-yard touchdown drive, which Rodgers capped with a 21-yard dart to Nelson on a crossing route.

The final score of the half followed a 47-yard drive by the Texans; Shayne Graham booted a 51-yard field goal.

Foster, the NFL’s second-leading rusher, was held to 22 yards on 13 carries by a Packers defense that was playing without nose tackle B.J. Raji. Foster’s longest run from scrimmage gained five yards.

Nelson led the Packers in receptions in the first half with five for 82 yards and, of course, the two touchdowns.

Linebackers D.J. Smith and Nick Perry sustained knee injuries. Smith’s return is doubtful and Perry’s is questionable.
