Packers look forward after quieting critics

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers were able to hush their critics -- for one day, at least -- with a convincing road win against previously unbeaten Houston. However, for it to be meaningful, they'll need to win consecutive games for the first time this season.

Now, the Packers (3-3) turn their attention to the Rams (3-3), whom they'll face Sunday in St. Louis in the last of three consecutive road games.

Rodgers, the reigning NFL MVP, completed 24 of 37 passes for 338 yards with a franchise record-tying six touchdowns and no interceptions (133.8 passer rating) in a 42-24 win against the Texans.

After the game, Rodgers was asked what he thought he told critics with the team's performance against Houston.

"Shhhhhhh," Rodgers replied before smirking and walking away.
