It’s almost here — the Green Bay Packers’ toughest test of the 2020 season so far is about to kick off in the Florida heat. The Packers are in Tampa to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this afternoon in a rare matchup of teams quarterbacked by Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady.
Naturally, that storyline has been broken down over and over again this week, so we will not address it any further. Instead. let’s look at the matchup of the NFL’s best offense according to DVOA against the league’s second-best defense. Tampa ranks in the top four against both the run and the pass by that metric, but they will be tested this week without one of their most critical players, nose tackle Vita Vea.
Can the Packers keep their hot start going coming out of their bye week and with Davante Adams returning? Can Kenny Clark’s return help provide some interior pass rush and allow the Smith Brothers to get to Brady with consistency? Those questions and more will be answered over the next sixty minutes of football.
