Green Bay Packers reassured its fan base and silenced critics Sunday night with a 42-24 beatdown of the previously unbeaten Houston Texans.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw for a franchise-tying six touchdowns and 338 yards and the Packers defense stopped both quarterback Matt Schaub and running back Arian Foster to take the big win and raise their record to 3-3.

“We haven’t gone anywhere,” Rodgers said, after the game. “Both James (Jones’s TD ) catches were increcible. We had a very good game plan, Mike called a very good game,” Rodgers said.

When Rodgers was asked to respond to the team’s critics, he said, “Shhhhhhh.”

Charles Woodson was also matter of fact in his comments after the game. “We’ve been through this before… next man up … play at a high level. We’e nobody’s underdog. We knew (Houston) is good team, but we know we’re better than that and showed today we still got it.”
