The Panthers were able to tie the game with a touchdown of their own at the end of the half on an eight-play 83 yard drive which was capped off with a 1-yard touchdown run by Tauren Poole.
The first team offense for the Texans did not play well in their two series as running back Arian Foster fumbled the ball on his first carry of the game, and then Matt Schaub threw a pass that was intended for Kevin Walters but it was intercepted by Jason Phillips. In Schaub's time in the game he went 3-for-6 for 52 yards.
