@Lambeau Field Green Bay, WI
Tampa Bay 0 7. 3. 13 - 23
Green Bay 3 14 17 3 - 37
The Packers pull back to .500 after a win against visiting Tampa Bay. The offense found there groove and Rodgers looked like the Rodgers of old completing 22 of 29 passes for 264 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Packers led 34-10 after 3 and would try to pound the ball to chew clock. The Packers would finish with more rushing, 38, than pass attempts. It was tough sledding as the Packers would not even average 4 yards per carry.
The Packers, after an opening 3 and out by the Bucs, had a great opening drive of there own. An offensive pass interference penalty followed by a offensive holding penalty ended the drive without even a chance for a field goal. Morgan Burnett would get the ball right back for the Pack, intercepting Winston on the Bucs next drive. Burnett almost gave the Bucs a fresh set of downs by fumbling the interception return but Damarious Randall would recover for the Packers. Crosby would give the Packers a 3-0 lead at the end of the first.
Jamis Winston would lead a drive for the Bucs and throw an 18 yard touchdown pass to O.J. Howard for a 7-3 lead. The Packers would add a Jamaal Williams touchdown run and a Randall Cobb touchdown pass for a 17-7 Halftime lead.
Rodgers would rush for a touchdown and throw a 46 yard TD pass to Davante Adams in the third. Tampa Bay would manage only a field goal in the third. The teams would reverse this in the 4th with 2 touchdowns by the Bucs and a Packer field goal. The Packers roll at home with a 37-23 victory. The Packers travel to Cleveland next week with a chance to go above .500.
