McCarthy said RT Mark Tauscher sustained a "significant" knee injury. ... The Packers were 1-for-10 on third-down conversions. ... Houston punter Matt Turk turned a potential blocked punt into an 18-yard gain and a first down in the third quarter. "I was running for my life, I tell you," Turk said.
