In the second quarter House blocked a Bryan Anger punt. Moses then fell on the ball in the end zone for a score. This was the first blocked punt by the Packers since September 2003. And it was the first blocked punt returned for a touchdown since December 1990.This is how heroes are made.ZeroThere is no getting around it.
