This afternoon, the Green Bay Packers are back in action following Monday’s disappointing and frustrating loss to the New York Giants. A home game is a welcome sight coming off that game and a short week, but the Packers have a contest against a division leader this week.
Thankfully, that division leader has a 6-7 record that matches the Packers’, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers come in to renew an old NFC Central division rivalry. These two teams played twice annually from 1978 through 2001 after the NFL’s most recent realignment, after which the divisions were split back up and the Bucs went to a more logical division in the NFC South.
Still, the teams have played 11 times in the 20-plus years since, with the Bucs taking six of those games — including a NFC Championship Game after the 2020 season. Both of these teams are very different than the ones that played in that game, and even from the teams that met in week three of last season. Gone are Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, as Baker Mayfield and Jordan Love will be under center instead.
