Brady and the Bucs sail past the Packers

After going up 10-0, Rodgers threw a couple of int's leading to 38 unanswered points from Tom Brady and his crew.


Game Summary

  • Packers finish off their first drive with a 39-yard field goal by K Mason Crosby. (3-0)

  • Facing a 3rd and 5, QB Aaron Rodgers scrambles from the 8-yard line all the way to the 1.

  • RB Aaron Jones takes the handoff on the one-yard line for the touchdown. (10-0)

  • Aaron Rodgers, on 3rd and 10, throws an interception to CB Jamel Dean, who takes it all the way back for six. (10-7)

Takeaways

  • The Packers entered this game ranked second in the NFL power rankings. They looked like a well-rounded team with relatively few holes coming into Sunday. But some costly turnovers, paired with a steady dose of pressure on Aaron Rodgers held Green Bay to just pen points in the first quarter.

  • Tampa Bay was coming off a tough loss against the Bears. It was a game that seemed largely lost by the Bucs themselves, who hurt themselves with an array of penalties. Brady was caught on camera screaming at teammates in frustration. And on the last drive of the game, he appeared to forget what down it was. This was clearly a game that Tampa needed to win badly, and they came through in a big way.
