End of 3rd quarter: Packers 7 - Texans 13

The Packers took the 2nd half kickoff and went three and out on three incomplete passes. Great way to start.

Another one of those "Uh-oh" moments came when the Pack had stopped the Texans, only to have Wisconsin native, UW-Whitewater alumnus and Texans' punter Matt Turk run for 19 yards on 4th down to keep the drive going. The Texans had their drive going. Yet another one of those moments there have been too many of today when the receiver fumbled the ball to have it recovered by the Pack...except the play had been called dead because his forward progress was stopped and it was thus non-reviewable. Great.

We got that one back though. On the very next play, Texans' RB Slaton was stripped of the ball and it was recovered by DT Johnny Jolly.

It didn't take long for the Packers to move the ball. On the last play of the quarter, Aaron Rodgers connected with Greg Jennings on a rainbow 64-yard pass play down to the Texans' 6-yard line. Jennings caught the ball between 2 defenders. This was the longest play - pass or run -- by the Pack all season.
