Halftime at LP Field

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A few halftime observations from LP Field, where Tennessee leads Green Bay, 13-10:
- At this point, the difference in the game is a 54-yard run by, yes, Titans tailback LenDale White. The jaunt came two plays after Green Bay briefly took a 10-6 lead on Donald Driver's 5-yard touchdown reception and put momentum back on Tennessee's side. Packers safety Atari Bigby caught White from behind at the Green Bay 20-yard line, but two plays later Chris Johnson scored to re-gain the lead.
- I'm not sure I understand why Titans coach Jeff Fisher had his team line up for a 63-yard field goal on the final play of the half. Ultimately, holder Craig Hentrich caught the snap, stood up and then kneeled as the half ended. If Fisher wasn't going to kick, why not have quarterback Kerry Collins take a knee out of an offensive alignment? Doesn't that eliminate the possibility of a bad snap in a field goal formation?
- The Packers ended the half with left tackle Chad Clifton standing on the sideline. Daryn Colledge was playing left tackle, Jason Spitz was at left guard and rookie Josh Sitton was at right guard. No announcement was made during the game about any injury Clifton might have suffered. We'll check back if more information arises.
