The Packers took their first loss of the season against the Bucs and looked awful while doing it.

The Green Bay Packers got destroyed but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week, 38 to 10. Not only did they get beat on the scoreboard but they got beat in literally every aspect of the game. In the short time since the game ended, people have already compared this loss to the 49ers games from last year.

I actually don’t think this is the case against Tampa Bay as even though the score looked bad at the end, Green Bay gout out to a 10-nothing lead and was actually looking pretty okay at first. Unfortunately, the Buccaneers rattled off 38 straight points and made the Packers look like some chumps in the process.

After the Bucs took the lead, it almost seemed like the Packers gave up and looked uninterested at times. Usually we’re complaining about the defense after a loss like this, but it was both sides of the ball. After the 10-0 lead disappeared, the offense couldn’t get anything going and the defense was looking passive the entire game.

Normally after a Green Bay Packers game, I write a winners and losers article. However, after this week’s game, there really isn’t a whole lot of positives to take away.

A couple of good things I wanted to shout out were the play of Josh Jackson and Krys Barnes. It’s no secret that this Packers defense was awful on Sunday, and has been all year. Jackson started for the injured Kevin King and I thought played pretty well other than a pass interference, which has been an issue with him.

Krys Barnes, I’ve written about before but he has been a great find for this Packers defense which has been lacking a forceful presence at middle linebacker for years. I honestly think he will be the Packers’ starter in the next couple of years.
