Aaron Rodgers’ final numbers last Sunday night in Green Bay’s loss to Dallas were good, but they don’t tell the entire story. Rodgers failed to make big plays in the passing game, largely because the Cowboys stopped Ryan Grant and rendered the Packers’ rushing attack powerless. If the Bucs can do the same thing this week, they could earn their third win of the season. And with Brian Griese looking poised running Jon Gruden’s offense, Tampa should have plenty of opportunities to score on the Packers’ depleted secondary. We predict the Bucs over the Packers, 20-17.
