One drive, one touchdown for the Green Bay Packers, who are missing wide receivers Sammy Watkins and Christian Watson in Sunday afternoon’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, finding a playmaker wasn’t a problem for Aaron Rodgers on the opening series, as rookie wideout Romeo Doubs had three catches for 35 yards.

Doubs’ first catch of the game went for a 21-yard gain, but the third and final of those receptions went for Doubs’ first career touchdown. In the back of a two-man stack with Allen Lazard, Doubs released and caught a short pass from Rodgers, pushing his way just across the goal line for the score:

The Packers got 19 yards on four touches from Aaron Jones on the drive, as well as a 17-yard gain from Randall Cobb to move the chains on third down. However, it was Doubs who provided the points to give Green Bay an early 7-3 lead in hot, muggy Tampa.
