Rodgers throws 6 TDs in Packers' rout of Houston Submitted: 10/15/2012
Houston - Aaron Rodgers set a career high and tied a franchise record with six touchdown passes, three to Jordy Nelson, and the Green Bay Packers routed the previously unbeaten Houston Texans 42-24 on Sunday night.

James Jones caught two touchdown passes for the Packers (3-3). Tom Crabtree had the other one, a 48-yarder that Rodgers threw just before taking a hit from Houston linebacker Brooks Reed.

Rodgers completed 24 of 37 passes for 338 yards. He tied Matt Flynn's game record for TD passes, set in last year's regular-season finale against Detroit.

The Texans (5-1) came in with the league's third-ranked defense. Arian Foster scored two touchdowns for Houston.
