Buccaneers blow out the Packers

Getty Images

In a major statement that they’re Super Bowl contenders, the Buccaneers took the Packers to the woodshed today in Tampa Bay.

After falling behind 10-0 early, the Bucs exploded, dominating both offensively and defensively on the way to a 38-10 win.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had by far his worst game of the season, struggling especially after Green Bay left tackle David Bakhtiari left the game with an injury. Rodgers completed 16 of 35 passes for 160 yards, with no touchdowns, two interceptions and four sacks. It was so ugly for the Packers’ offense that they eventually pulled Rodgers for Tim Boyle.

Tom Brady only threw for 166 yards, but he had two touchdowns, no interceptions and no sacks, and he got more comfortable than he’s looked in years playing with Rob Gronkowski, who led the Bucs with five catches for 78 yards. Eventually Brady took a seat and was replaced by Blaine Gabbert.

Ronald Jones had a big game running the ball for Tampa Bay, with 113 yards and two touchdowns. Bruce Arians likes a balanced offense, and he had one today.

The Packers, who looked like perhaps the top team in the NFC over the first five weeks of the season, now find themselves 4-1 and half a game behind the Bears in the NFC North. The Buccaneers are now 4-2, leading the NFC South and looking like they might just give Brady a chance to play in his 10th Super Bowl.

  1. No penalties on Tampa Bay. The refs killed that game for Green Bay and the Packers would have won by 10 if the refs were fair.

    Wow, I just now know what it’s like to be a Vikings fan. that felt weird. The reality is Green Bay got it handed to them. Nice win by Tampa. The Pack has some work to do.

  2. I don’t think there is any dispute anymore. There is no way that Aaron Rodgers can have an argument for MVP over Russell Wilson now. this game was just like the NFC championship game last year against the 49ers. They got dominated and pushed around the same way.

  3. Anybody still care to argue that Aaron Rodgers is the better QB than Tom Brady?

    Anybody?

    And, we know there a many that have argued just that over the years

  4. Oh, you naysayers who said that Brady had finally lost it for good.

    Tampa has had a good, no, solid defense this season, and Brady has been getting more comfortable with his new offense.

    Green bay was solid, they said.

    The Bucs decimated them tonight.

  5. Lol, the Packers are so overrated. What excuses will they make for Rodgers now? Lol, absolutely pathetic.

  6. imagine chanting the same drivel for years, “b b b but Belichick, b b b b but matt cassell, b b b the system” and having that talking point slowly fade away, and hes 43.

    by the way Brady and Brees are equal kn all time Td passes

  7. Wait, what? I thought the Packers were a lock to win? All their fans were telling us the Vikings would be the only NFC North team to lose today?

    Why should we waste our time trying? If they win out, go 18-1, and wind the SB you’ll still be spewing this garbage.

    The fact that Brady only passed for 168 yards yet the score was 38-10
    tells me Brady was just one player in a total team effort and win.

    Tom Brady has yet another great defense. Amazing. The Bucs, really?


    Yeah remember how you said he wouldn’t be anything without BB
    Remember how you said he was “done”
    Arm still looks real strong.
    Movement in the pocket still good.

    And the defense excuse is lame.

    Why didn’t Manning say in more SB?????

    8 times he went into the playoffs with a top ten D in BOTH scoring AND yards.
    7 or the 8 times ONE and DONE.

    No QB has played better in big games more often than Tom Brady. Aka the GOAT

  12. Tom Brady, undisputed GOAT!!!!!!!!!!!! Love it, and love seeing Gronk being Gronk again! Great game, Bucs!

  13. Green Bay has to prove they can beat a good team with a very good D. They haven’t yet. NO is a bit overrated, Lions are the Lions and sucky Atlanta dominated the weakest and most embarrassing team in football, the Vikings, for their wins.

    Let’s go get a W in TX.

  14. Pack fan here great game by Bucs hat tip we got outplayed…no argument. The problem with the Pack is Pettines run defense. You cant win a superbowl getting pushed around. Hopefully the Vikings are dumb enough to fire Zimmer. If I’m Lafluer I’d push Pettine to the side for Zimmer as D coordinator without even a second thought. Zimmer is a great coordinator but not a great head coach.

    Aaron Rodgers is the GOAT. Change my mind.

    ———

    He’s not even One of the top two quarterbacks in Packers history

  16. Oh wow, the Bucs are 4-2 and the Pack is 4-1…and Seattle is undefeated, the Rams and Bears (who beat Tampa) have one loss but Brady is going to the SB already lol. Every week someone wins or loses and their the next power or going to be in the top of the draft…until the following week when it flips again.

  17. Monday morning quarterbacking has now moved to Sunday night quarterbacking.
    There are knee-jerk reactions on both sides. “The Packers are terrible”. “The Bucs beat a good team”.
    Which one is it?

  18. Typical Green Bay. Smooth sailing until they play a defense with a pass rush. But let’s keep drafting qbs, rbs and a slow te in the first few rounds. That’ll stop offenses

  19. “Bucs haven’t beaten anyone”

    Does today count? Or are the Packers now suddenly trash just because Brady beat them? Not like they were ranked as a top 2 NFC team with a top 2 MVP candidate on it or anything.

    The Vikings are in last place in the north.

    Change my mind

  21. Let’s calm down the Brady is better than Aaron talk. Only ones who think that are Pats fans, Bucs fans and Vikes fans. I’ll take Rodgers 10 out of 10 with the same weapons on offense and defense. If Aaron would have been Belichick’s QB the past 15 years he’d have a better resume than Brady.

    Green Bay should be OK. But they have things to fix. And I’m confident MLF and team will. GB had no answers for anything today and Tampa had no real errors (zero penalties, few bad plays) but that doesn’t mean they’re not contenders. Those games will happen. I’d love for these teams to meet again in the playoffs. I’ll take my chances with Aaron.

  22. What a beatdown, Bucs looking like the best team in the NFC. But I can already see next week’s PFT Power Rankings: Packers get beatdown and go from #2 to #3. Bucs dominate and go from #15 to #12.

  23. Brady is and always has been a better quarterback than Aaron Rodgers. As soon as that first pick six was thrown it was all over.

  24. For all you guys who keep saying Rodgers is great, look at him today. The GOAT Russel Wilson has NEVER, in his entire career, got beat that bad lol Stop talking like AR is even a top QB when he quits on his team as soon as he starts losing smh #LetRussCook #RWMVP2020

    Who cares? Do you really get bothered how some know-it-all ranks your team? Here’s a hint: let it go as it doesn’t matter. Hug your loved ones, take your dog for a walk, read a good book. Rankings shouldn’t and don’t matter. If they do, then I want to do you a favor: my new rankings are:
    1. Tampa Bay
    2. KC
    3. TN
    4. Seattle
    5. Minnesota

  26. Personally, I never cared who Rodgers was better than. I only cared he was good enough and that’s good enough for me. The fanboys can lose their voices over it, while I take a nap.

  27. Ah yes, Who remember when certain Websites actually Ranked the Green bay ahead of the Superbowl Champions when the Chiefs only crime was to lose one game out of their last 14 played.But Digress.

  28. Brady is a leader……Rodgers is and always was a whiner, complainer, looking for flags, and after every incompletion, the receiver ran the wrong route…..a leader is the last thing Rodgers is.

  29. This is an excellent team win for the Bucs. Every team has a game like the Packers and, like Troy Aikman said, they will be fine and regroup. That’s all.

    Win out???????? Hahahahaha. Tell that to the Bears, ya know the team that has taken the Pack to the hilt the past few times and who are in first place right?

  32. Difference for the Buccaneers tonight was they were more disciplined. NO PENALTIES. Each game they’ve lost is because the wheels came off the bus with multiple penalties.

    —————————————————————————————–
    Please note that Brady and the Bucs are 4-2, and Belichick with Cam Newton is 2-3. Brady is doing just fine without Bill or Josh, thank you very much

    And if you took Rodgers over Brady 10 out of 10 with the same weapons, you’d be 0-10. Six rings to one, including the greatest come-from-behind Super Bowl win of all time

  34. The difference is when Brady gets sacked and pushed around by defense he gets more feisty and pushes back to win. I remember when Suh and Suggs used to mop the grass with him, the temper and red face. With Rodgers he seems to to get frazzled and gets worse. In this game the Bucs defense delivered. No penalty? Brady’s yelling must have worked.

    He’s not a Patriots fan. He’s a Jets fan that pretends to be a Patriots fan then takes shots at Brady. He’s been doing it for years on Patriots articles. Now he does it on Bucs articles

    It’s sad

  38. How many times have you seen a team de-pants a team in the regular season only to have the opposite happen in the post-season? Happens all the time. It’s not who you play it’s when you play them. Pack will be fine Bucs are good but not as good as they think. It’s the NFL things change week to week.

    I thought the Packers played the Bucs today and not the Vikings. Packers rubes deflecting is hilariously delicious 😋. They just cannot stand the fact their Golden Boy got beat by the Goat!

  42. Brady was considered a gloried game manager his first 10 years in the league and Manning was universally thought of as way better. Now he is the considered the GOAT because of the rings. Oh yeah, let’s ignore the great coach, the AFC Least, the defense, on and on.

  43. You really decided that in one game? Football is a team sport. In Rodgers 7 playoff loses, the D gave up an average 37 points. That happened to Brady twice, he lost both games.

    —‘

    And in the HOME playoff game vs Seattle his D forced 5 turnovers and Rogers vans his offense scored ZERO points off all those turnovers.

    2 weeks later Brady torched that same defense.

    Rogers couldn’t beat the falcons

    2 weeks later Brady led the greatest comeback in SB history.

    Rogers is 0-37 when trailing going into the 4th Q

    Rogers is a front runner and mentally weak

    You saw it again today. That game was over when he threw the Pick six. And the pacers were still winning at that point.

    Remember the Patriots being down 14 TWICE and Brady. Bringing the Patriots back to beat YOUR Ravens??

    Remember you said Brady was “done”
    Remember you said he wouldn’t be good in Tampa??

    Ha ha h ha ha ha

  44. Why are these Viking fans trashing on the 4-1 Packers while their team, who the Packers already beat, sit at 1-5??? LOL

    The only “on and on is your constant excuse making and how obviously jealous you are.

    Again

    Why didn’t Manning win more SB??
    He played in a division that wasn’t very tough. At one point the Colts won 12 division titles in a row.

    And AGAIN Manning went into the playoffs EIGHT times with a top 10 D in BOTH scoring AND yards AND a top 10 offense.

    SEVEN of those times ONE AND DONE. But you ignore that.

    Sorry Brady crybaby but the Manning Brady debate ended years ago.

    Tied first all time in TD passes in NFL QBs. Second all time in passing yards and multiple MVPS and the list goes on and on and on.

    I think there is a song for a person like you. It’s called “Hey Jealousy “

    —————————–
    False, he has 14 wins when trailing entering the 4th quarter.

  48. This one is on the Defense. They need to do something on occasion. Also, there are ways to beat the blitz, especially when it is used on 95% of the plays.

  49. One of the picks was a tipped pass. Relax. 2 picks out of something like 184 passes is pretty good overall.

  50. “ False, he has 14 wins when trailing entering the 4th quarter.”

    Yeah those are all vs teams with losing records and look

    With 14 career fourth-quarter comebacks and a success rate of 29 percent, according to Pro Football Focus, Rodgers ranks behind the likes of Joe Flacco, Ryan Tannehill and Derek Carr.

    Aaron Rodgers is 0-37 when trailing by more than a point in the 4th quarter against teams with a winning record

    Brady beat Wilson. In the Super Bowl. Remember?

    Seahawks fans… 🙄

  52. Jealous of Brady? How ridiculous does that sound? I don’t play football. I don’t get personal attachments to these players either or wear jerseys with some other man’s on the back. I root for the Ravens and when they suck, I admit it. Lamar is not even a top 5 QB in this league. I have no problem saying that, but if the team does it’s job, I’m good. Jealous, no. Brady just doesn’t pass my eye test over a few QBs in NFL history. His 5 yard check downs just don’t do it for me.

    ————————————
    Nope, that’s also incorrect. He won when trailing by 6 in the 4th quarter @ Cowboys (9-7) in 2017 and trailing by 17 vs. Bears (12-4) in 2018.

  54. This is our playoff and super bowl win for us Vikings fans. When the Packers get beat, that is . . .

  55. Rodgers is overglorified and overrated. He has thrown 6 touchdowns to 7 interceptions in career NFC championship games, and he has as many fourth quarter comebacks as Andrew Luck and Donovan McNabb. When we look at game winning drives, he has a total of 24, which is just as many as Joe Flacco and Matt Hasselbeck. Brady has better records against the NFC North, AFC South, AFC North, and NFC South than he did against his own AFC East division. Rodgers is a reincarnation of Peyton Manning in disguise, when push comes to shove.

  56. Interesting how whenever Aaron Rodgers has these titanic head to heads with other Hall of Famers he always wilts like this. maybe he should stop being so concerned with how other people compare him or rank him and focus on throwing it to the guys in green jerseys.

  57. You guys are trying your best with these obscure stats to knock down Rodgers. These are all team stats. Brady’s individual numbers don’t compare to Rodgers. Why do I always get personal attacks when I don’t hero worship Brady? Patriots are the best NFL team I have every seen. They have the best approach to playing winning football. Remember all those games where Patriots would get the key turnover, Brady would drive 30 yards and Adam V would kick the winning FG? Great team ball. Brady did his job, but I personally, never saw him as the best. My opinion and you have yours. No need to attack my character.

    ————————————————-
    These obscure stats they are making up are not true, such as that 0-37 one. They attack you because they are not here to have a meaningful discussion or gather information. They’re here to simply bash Rodgers and anger Packer fans.

  59. The Packers GAVE UP. This game was loss in the trenches on BOTH sides of the ball. No protection and no defensive pressure.

  60. We still can’t as easily compare quarterback stats between Rodgers and Brady, considering these two guys started their careers in different eras of football. When Brady and Peyton first played in this league in 1998 and 2001, defenders were allowed to sack quarterbacks at their knees, illegal contact flags were virtually nonexistent, and defenders were allowed to pummel the quarterback with their full body weight without roughing the passer flags. The rules were gradually changing, and that was partially because of Bill Polian.

    Remember Nate Clements’ hit on Tom Brady back in like 2001? That play is two penalties nowadays. When Carson Palmer got injured in 2006, defenders were no longer allowed to take down quarterbacks at their knees. Then, Rodgers didn’t start his career until 2008. At this point, the pass happy league was already born. Nowadays, it’s even worse. No one can touch the quarterback. Imagine if Rodgers had to play against Ray Lewis, Bernard Pollard, Terrell Suggs, Ed Reed, Vontaze Burfict, or Troy Polamalu all in their prime.

  61. So much for plugging in anyone into the “system “, Brady WAS the system.
    Another win for Brady on a team that otherwise was going nowhere. Further proof that the Pats success was primarily due to Brady (now 43), not BB….who pre-Brady as a head coach had a losing record with the Browns and was fired for that. Even with supercam ….BB will have a sub-500 record moving forward. Case closed.

  62. Check back at the end of the season. Packers win a ton of games, and that is what I watch for, seeing the Pack win. So most of the time I am a happy camper. Today the Pack got their heads handed to them. The seasons not over yet, but the Packers do have some problems that I question whether they can be fixed. Drafting a receiver wouldn’t have helped. I was kind of hoping Love would get in, but no sense getting him killed.

  63. Not shocked really. IMO the Pack defense, rated 29th, showed how bad they really are. Even if this team were to make the playoffs, its again, one and done because the D cant stop anyone.
    The previous 4 wins the pack just outscored the weaker teams who have a combined record of 5-24. No defense was required in those games since they lacked it also.

  64. A few years ago the Pack marched in KC with a 5-0 record and looked unbeatable. Ariens was the coach at the time and he decided to play man coverage against Rodgers. Till then he was carving up zone defenses.
    Rodgers tossed three picks in the first half, looked like crap the rest of the game and similar to today, his team folded like a tent without his leadership. Rodgers hates man coverage, it may cause him to make an interception.

  65. One positive I will say about Aaron Rodgers is that he’s one of the greatest passers of all time. It’s not easy to throw a ball in a tight window for receivers on those hail mary plays. Those plays are so easily intercepted or knocked down. So, when he has protection, he has the potential to play like the best ever. I believe to this day that Rodgers should play in New England. He should sign a veteran minimum deal, allow Belichick to sign offensive playmakers around him, and he needs to humble himself. Then, he’ll win another ring.

  66. It’s not the Packers fault they lost the official’s just weren’t making the plays for them. That’s how they won last year and when the Zebra’s don’t show up that’s a big part of Green Bays game that’s missing

  67. At 43 Brady is STILL the best QB in the league. Max Kellerman and all the other Rodgers disciples hemmed and hawed about “the Most Talented QB’ ever who promptly goes out and almost throws FOUR picks, while Mr. “Not What He Used To Be” throws 2 TD’s and is now SECOND in the league behind Russell Wilson and has his team at 4-2 and getting more dominant week in and week out. Must be Belichicks “System”. ……Ohhhhh wait

  68. FACT: EVERY coach that has left Brady fails (Belichick was 33-46 BEFORE Brady). Crennel, Mangini, McDaniels, O’Brien, Weis, BRADY IS THE SYSTEM. He leaves NE at 43 and is getting better after LEAVING Belichicks “System”. Just plug Brady in to ANY team and you’re a contender. Tampa is perfect case in point. Belichick’s “System” has them at 2-3 and he has Cam, Edelman, Burkhead, James White, Gilmore, McCourty and LOSES TO THE BRONCOS.

  69. Packers went up 10-0 and thought the game was over. They just didn’t seem to be into playing after that.

  70. pack13queens0 says:

    And of course Officials miss an obvious Pass Interference on both Interceptions. He was going to go the whole season with 0 but the zebras had to ruin that. Still going 19-0 though, Go Pack

  71. I am a Brady and Rodgers fan, I mean why shouldn’t we all be, they’re both incredible talents and win a lot, mostly do and say the right thing. That’s what I want out of my QB, someone who wins a lot.

    Rodgers has better physical traits at QB and Brady is better between the ears (in football, we know how smart Rodgers is in real life) with the key factor / determinant being Brady has that killer instinct and leadership Rodgers lacks. That’s what sets them apart on the field for me. Brady’s been blown out too, like many teams when you QB long enough. I remember the Pats winning the Super Bowl after the Bills took the Pats to the woodshed to start the season, like 35-0 or something. Rodgers just hasn’t had the ability to rally his team from behind against good competition so far in his career, there are countless examples. Brady’s had better coaching, which can’t be understate.

    It’s a long season, Rodgers will be fine. Brady will be fine.

    For all you guys who keep saying Rodgers is great, look at him today. The GOAT Russel Wilson has NEVER, in his entire career, got beat that bad lol Stop talking like AR is even a top QB when he quits on his team as soon as he starts losing smh #LetRussCook #RWMVP2020

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    December 11, 2016. Wilson recovered from this “unprecedented” loss. So will Rodgers. Ironic, isn’t it? Packers? At Lambeau? Love it.

    ”Wilson had just thrown incomplete on fourth down, and the offense failed to score on its ninth straight possession. It was the type of performance Wilson and coach Pete Carroll are not used to — especially this time of year — as the Seahawks got blown out, 38-10, Sunday at Lambeau Field.”

  73. As bad as AR looked today, I’d still trade Kirk Cousins for him eight days a week. AR on his worst day is head and shoulders above an overpaid and below average KC. Vikings fan.

    You guys are trying your best with these obscure stats to knock down Rodgers. These are all team stats. Brady’s individual numbers don’t compare to Rodgers.

    —–

    In fact, all stats are “team stats” as not a single play is ever run without the entire team participating. As for Brady’s numbers, he blows away Rogers in all of the important numbers: SB wins, SB appearances, Postseason wins, total wins, winning %, 4th quarter comebacks, Total TD….. need I go on?

  75. That was an ugly game by the Packers, good thing it will just go down as 1 loss in the standings, it would be valid to count it as 3 losses. I think the Packers need to work on playing when there is adversity on the field. AR rarely throws INTs, let alone pick 6’s and I think the whole team sort of gave up or froze like a deer in headlights after that. The Packers are still a great team when they have the lead but if they get down against a decent team, it seems to turn into a steamroll. It is one game in a long season, they weren’t going to go 16-0 so I am very curious to see how they will bounce back. This is a setback but it is not the end of the world to lose 1 game, it will all depend on how they respond going forward.

  76. Against average and below average defenses Rodgers looks phenomenal but against all time great defenses you definitely want Brady. Yesterday’s game reminded me of Rodgers going up against the Broncos in 2015, and against the 49ers last year. He threw for 77 yards against the Broncos and 104 yards against the 49ers. Brady with a decimated O-line almost forced OT in the AFCG against the Broncos in 2015.

    Also, BB is the best coach ever just like Brady is the GOAT. People need to realize Cam joined the team in July, hadn’t practiced in the last couple of weeks, the O-line is a mess. They will be happy if they win 9 games this season. Brady was very smart in joining a loaded Bucs team. The Bucs definitely have a very good chance of going to the SB during Brady’s stay there.

    Imagine if Rodgers had to play against Ray Lewis, Bernard Pollard, Terrell Suggs, Ed Reed, Vontaze Burfict, or Troy Polamalu all in their prime.
    ——————————————-
    We don’t need to imagine, he’s undefeated against Lewis and won the SB with MVP honors against Polamalu when he won DPotY.

  78. We don’t need to imagine, he’s undefeated against Lewis and won the SB with MVP honors against Polamalu when he won DPotY.

    He made Polamalu look like a practice squader in that game.
