Packers QB Matt FlynnNASHVILLE — The rain stopped and started again in the second quarter at LP Field in Nashville, but the score didn’t change as the Packers took a 7-6 lead into halftime on Saturday night.

The Packers had good field position at the 50 after a shanked punt, but QB Matt Flynn fumbled the snap on first down and the drive went nowhere.

On their next possession, the Packers moved inside the Titans’ 35-yard line following a 23-yard catch-and-run by TE Brandon Bostick, but an offensive pass interference penalty on WR Jarrett Boykin on the next snap stalled things, leading to another punt.

Tennessee had one potential scoring drive, converting a third-and-2 with a scramble and throw by QB Charlie Whitehurst to RB Bishop Sankey for a 23-yard gain. That put the Titans at the Green Bay 25. But a sack by CB Jarrett Bush on a slot blitz pushed the Titans out of field goal range, and they were forced to punt in the final minute of the half.

Scott Tolzien came in for the final Packers series, and he moved the offense across midfield but was sacked on the final play of the half.
