Packers lose to Texans on last second field goal

Posted:

GREEN BAY (AP) -- Playing his first game in a month because of a knee injury, quarterback Matt Schaub marched the Houston Texans to set up Kris Brown's 40-yard field goal on the final play of the game to beat the Green Bay Packers 24-21 on Sunday.

It was the second straight late defensive meltdown at home by the Packers (5-8), who came into Sunday's game holding on to playoff hopes in the mediocre NFC North.

The Texans won despite committing four turnovers, perhaps the byproduct of a warm-weather team playing in temperatures that hovered around 3 degrees at kickoff. Still, the Texans (6-7) managed their second victory in six days after beating Jacksonville on Monday night.
