The Packers and the Bucs are dusting off the old “Bay of Pigs” rivalry, complete with throwback uniforms for the Tampa home team.
And barely six minutes into the game, the score already is knotted at seven.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has had a key hand in each score. First, he tossed a 74-yard touchdown pass to receiver James Jones. Then, an interception from Rodgers was returned by Tampa corner Elbert Mack from the Green Bay 44 to the Packers’ eight yard line. Two plays later, quarterback Josh Freeman delivered a six-yard touchdown pass to running back Derrick Ward.
The 4-3 Packers desperately need to win the game. The Bucs desperately need to win any game.
