  • Preview

We got the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking on the Green Bay Packers who are both competing for a spot in the NFC Championship. The first thing you think of when you think about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Green Bay Packers is probably the quarterbacks with Brady vs Rodgers but the defenses will be the most important factor in this game.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will without Antonio Brown which will be a huge blow as he was just starting to find his stride. His status will affect the personnel that coach Ariens will use. This knee injury isn't new as it kept him limited in the New Orleans Saints game and we saw Brady and Ariens turn to a lot of 12 personnel. Tampa Bay has been a nightmare to run the ball against and this has made opposing teams very one-dimensional.

The Green Bay Packers have been led by Aaron Rodgers who has played at MVP levels with Davante Adams looking virtually unguardable. The Green Bay Packers have been an extremely balanced team this season but it is rather safe to assume that they'll be leaning a bit more on the pass in this one. Green Bay not only has an elite offense on their hands but they also have an exceptional defense the best Rodger's has ever had. The Green Bay Packers will be without their Left Tackle David Bakhtiari.

Tampa Bay's defense job will be anything but simple as they'll have to shut down Aaron Rodgers, but as long as they can keep Adams quiet this should be a Tampa Bay victory as they did shut down Michael Thomas a week ago. To make Rodger's life even harder he'll be without his starting Left Tackle against a sneaky Bucs team that loves the blitz. Rodgers will need strong contributions from the rest of the receiving corp but they have all dealt with their fair share of inconsistency. Overall Rodgers will have a decent game but he won't be able to turn this one into a shootout which bodes well for Tampa as they'll be utilizing the run game with dual Tight Ends against a tough defense causing this game to go Under.
