Green Bay is up by a touchdown with the score at 10-3 heading into halftime down in Tampa Bay. Both the Packers and Buccaneers came out flat to start the game, each with three poor drives. The Packers were able to score the first points of the game after running back Eddie Lacy broke loose in the first quarter for 44 yards and a score. Mason Crosby connected on a 42-yard field goal in the second to make the score 10-0. The Buccaneers put together a drive late in the half, resulting in three points.

Good

Tampa Bay has looked terrible on offense. That doesn't come off as a surprise, but they had zero total yards compared to 236 from the Packers at one point in this game. Green Bay didn't allow the Buccaneers to get their first first down until midway through the second quarter.

Lacy topped 1,000 yards for the second straight season after that 44-yard run in the first quarter, and he has run the ball well, recording 84 yards on just 10 carries.

Bad

Aaron Rodgers has been shaken up in the game after taking hard shots from defensive end Michael Johnson (two). The game broadcast did display some footage of him getting extra foam padding in his left shoe. Backup Matt Flynn hasn't been put into the game, but he has been wearing his helmet on the sidelines.

Ugly

Davante Adams has two dropped passes in the game, and Mike McCarthy elected to fill in Jarrett Boykin at the No.3 wide receiver spot right after the first one. Adams couldn't hang onto another pass in the second, but to be fair, he was drilled by safety Dashon Goldston. The Packers are still battling some drops after last week's performance.
