Green Bay @ Tampa Bay
Current Records: Green Bay 4-0; Tampa Bay 3-2
What to Know
The Green Bay Packers have had a week off and are no doubt ready to get back on the field. They will square off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the road at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium. Green Bay’s scoring has been on the decline the past three games, which is obviously a trend the Buccaneers hope will continue.
Green Bay had a touchdown and change to spare in a 30-16 victory over the Atlanta Falcons two weeks ago. Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers was slinging it as he passed for four TDs and 327 yards on 33 attempts. Rodgers ended up with a passer rating of 147.50.
It could have gone either way late during winning time for Tampa Bay or the Chicago Bears last Thursday, but it was Chicago snatching the 20-19 win. The losing side was boosted by RB Ronald Jones, who picked up 106 yards on the ground on 17 carries.
Most of the squad’s points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed 13. K Ryan Succop delivered a perfect 4-for-4 game.
This next matchup is expected to be close, with Green Bay going off at just a 1.5-point favorite. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.
The Packers’ victory brought them up to 4-0 while the Buccaneers’ loss pulled them down to 3-2. A couple stats to keep an eye on: Green Bay hasn’t thrown an interception yet this season. But Tampa Bay enters the contest having picked the ball off six times, good for second in the NFL. We’ll see which of these strengths — offense or defense — will win out.
