Aaron Rodgers. Tom Brady. A battle of two Hall-of-Fame quarterbacks at Lambeau Field with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. Next week, the Green Bay Packers will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Buccaneers were impressive in a 30-20 victory over the New Orleans Saints on the road on Sunday. They now advance to Lambeau Field for a rematch with the Packers.

It should make for a fascinating battle between two great quarterbacks and two of the best teams in the NFL.

It will be yet another big challenge for Matt LaFleur’s team, who will still have a sour taste from their 38-10 defeat to the same Bucs team earlier this season.

A lot has changed since then and we should see a different game. Most notably, they’ll go from a hot day in Florida to a frozen Lambeau Field with the possibility of snow.

And if you need reassurance that things can change between matchups, look no further than the Buccaneers’ win over the Saints on Sunday night. The Saints dominated the Bucs in two previous meetings earlier in the year, including a 38-3 victory at Raymond James Stadium.

Green Bay’s last game against Tampa Bay was the only time all season Aaron Rodgers hasn’t looked like an MVP. It was also a rare off-day for the league’s best offensive line.

It’s not just the Buccaneers, but also Tom Brady. If there’s one player in the NFL who knows what it takes to win these big games, it’s Brady.

It will be the Packers’ task to stop him advancing to his 10th Super Bowl.

To be the best, you’ve got to beat the best. To advance to the Super Bowl, the Green Bay Packers will need to defeat the best quarterback of all-time when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers visit Lambeau Field next Sunday.
