Will the Packers improve to 5-0?
In a huge NFC matchup this week, the Green Bay Packers visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Green Bay is aiming to improve to 5-0, while the Bucs look to put last week’s defeat behind them and improve to 4-2 on the season.
With Davante Adams and Kenny Clark potentially back in the lineup, the Lombardi Ave staff are confident of another Packers victory this weekend.
Kevin Culligan: Packers
Coming off a bye and getting Davante Adams back from injury, the Packers offense should be able to put up plenty of points. The Bucs are a solid team, but this one could be out of reach by the time the fourth quarter begins.
Score: Green Bay 45, Tampa Bay 27
Christian Borman: Packers
With a week off and time to get healthy, the Packers will be bringing back numerous players, but probably none more important than Davante Adams and Kenny Clark. Equanimeous St. Brown could be back as well, bringing more depth to the depleted receiving corps.
The Bucs haven’t looked as good as many expected. Injuries have been an issue for them as well. They lost defensive tackle Vita Vea for the season, leaving a big hole in the middle of the defensive line.
Their passing defense has also been less than impressive. Green Bay’s top offense should be able to move the ball and put up some points on Sunday, but the defense will need to slow down Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. This will likely be their biggest test to date. But after seeing them lose to the Bears last Thursday, this task seems less daunting than before. Packers pull away late and cruise to a double-digit victory to go to 5-0.
Score: Green Bay 31, Tampa Bay 20
Nile McNair: Packers
Coming off the bye week, the Packers have a highly anticipated matchup with the Buccaneers. For the first time both Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady are matching up as NFC foes.
With the Bucs coming off an embarrassing loss to the Chicago Bears they’ll come out focused and with great purpose. However, the Packers will be the healthier team and the return of Davante Adams will be the difference maker in this one. Green Bay will win by a final score of 31-24, as they will score over 30 points for their fifth straight game.
Score: Green Bay 31, Tampa Bay 24
Jesse Fry: Packers
In a marquee match up for the NFL, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady will go head-to-head for only the third time. I believe they will give fans what they want and this game will become a shootout.
When it’s Rodgers vs. Brady, how could you have it any other way? The game will and should come down to the two future Hall-of-Famers. Green Bay is rested getting healthy and coming off the bye. That gave Matt LaFleur two weeks to prepare for the Buccaneers so I think we could see a few new wrinkles. After what I think will be a classic, I see the Packers staying hot and prevailing.
Score: Green Bay 38, Tampa Bay 35
Parker Moes: Packers
I think their offense will end up overwhelming Tampa’s defense late in the game and it will be to the Bucs’ detriment in the end. Green Bay continues its undefeated season with a huge win in Tampa.
