Aaron Rodgers and the Packers finally looked like themselves on Sunday night, handing the Texans their first defeat of the season and sending a message to the rest of the league.
What exactly was that message, you ask?
“Shh,” Rodgers responded when asked after the game what the Packers told their critics by smoking the Texans.
The Packers are now 3-3 on the season following the victory, but Sunday showed just how dangerous they can still be despite some early-season struggles. Rodgers tossed for 338 yards and a career-high six touchdowns in the win.
“We were all just tired of answering questions about, ‘What happened to the Packers?’ [and] ‘What happened to me?’ It was a good team effort tonight,” Rodgers said after the game. “Just getting back to the way we were capable of playing. We haven’t gone anywhere.”
The Packers haven’t gone anywhere, but their critics may have.
