GREEN BAY, Wisc. (2:53 p.m.) - The game is tied at 21-21. There are about five minutes left in the fourth quarter, and I am heading down to the field. The field will be freezing, but the Texans will need to get hot to pull out a win.

GREEN BAY, Wisc. (2:33 p.m.) - Andre Johnson's catch for a two-point conversion could be the play of the game. He was falling out of the end zone with double coverage. Johnson kept control of the ball and dragged his right foot for the score.

It was the first two-point conversion catch of 'Dre's career.

GREEN BAY, Wisc. (2:30 p.m.) - Wide receiver Kevin Walter has had the hot hand in the game with more than 130 receiving yards, but Andre Johnson came up big with an 11-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter to give Houston the lead.

Johnson now has 30 touchdown catches in his career.

GREEN BAY, Wsc. (2:10 p.m.) - Steve Slaton has been abusing the Packers' run defense, which ranks 27th in the league. Slaton has been making plays between the tackles and broke the 100-yards rushing mark in the third quarter. He now has more than 1,000 yards rushing this season.

Punter Matt Turk made a gutsy play on fourth-and-six at Houston's 35. He saw a blocked kick coming and decided to run the ball to the right, getting 18 yards on the ground. But the Texans weren't able to capitalize on the play. On first-and-10 at Houston's 16, Slaton fumbled the ball. It was recovered by Green Bay.

GREEN BAY, Wisc. (12:59 p.m.) - Defensive end Tim Bulman forced the Packers to punt after sacking quarterback Aaron Rogers for a seven-yard loss. It was Bulman's fourth sack of the season.

GREEN BAY, Wisc. (12:54 p.m.) - Tight end Owen Daniels fumbled the ball at Green Bay's one-yard line after making an eight-yard catch. A Texans receiver hadn't fumbled the ball since the team played the Miami Dolphins earlier this season.

GREEN BAY, Wisc. (12:45 p.m.) - The Texans closed the first quarter with a 7-0 lead. After scoring on the opening drive, Houston's offense stalled. Running back Steve Slaton had a 34-yard run at the end of the period. He had six carries for 69 yards in the quarter.

GREEN BAY, Wisc. (12:15 p.m.) - The Texans don't seem to be affected by the cold temperatures (three degrees at kickoff). It took the team three plays to score on their opening drive, with quarterback Matt Schaub connecting with receiver Kevin Walter on a 58-yard touchdown pass. Walter beat safety Nick Collins and cornerback Tramon Williams on the play. Collins went down injured and left the game.

It was the eighth touchdown catch for Walter this season, which ties a franchise single-season record.

GREEN BAY, Wisc. (11:00 a.m.) - It's an hour until kickoff at Lambeau Field. Outside of the stadium, fans have been tailgating since sunrise and the smell of bratwurst fills the air. The temp is about eight degrees and there is a light dust of snow on the field.

The Texans have begun warming up, and a lot of the players aren't wearing long-sleeved shirts under their jerseys. Their adrenaline is too high for them to be affected by the cold.

Here are the inactives for the Texans: QB Craig Nall, FS Nick Ferguson, CB Matterral Richardson, S Will Demps, LB Kevis Coley, G Kasey Studdard, T Rashad Butler and TE Mark Bruener. Brandon Harrison will start for Ferguson.

The inactives for Green Bay: QB Brain Brohm, S Atari Bigby, CB Joe Porter, RB DeShawn Wynn, LB Brandon Chillar, T Breno Giacomini, G Allen Barbe and DE Jeremy Thompson.
