Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been outstanding this season, leading the Packers to the cusp of the playoffs yet again. But the Packers are in a precarious playoff position headed into today’s road game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Though the Packers are expected to win, they actually have to in order to keep their shared lead in the NFC North. If you can’t watch Packers game live on TV today vs the Bucs, you can watch Packers vs Buccaneers game online free live stream as well.
Kickoff for today’s Buccaneers vs Packers game live is 1pm EST / 10am PST from Raymond James Stadium. The 10-4 Green Bay Packers are 10-point favorites over the 2-12 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Packers lost a surprising game last Sunday to the Buffalo Bills, losing their grip on sole possession of their division. Coupled with their 13-21 loss and the Lions’ narrow win over the Vikings, the Lions and Packers now share first place in the NFC North. Both Green Bay and Detroit are playing teams with poor records today, so watch Packers game online free live to see if they remind fans why the Packers have the NFL’s second-ranked offense.
Rodgers this week said he expected to play better against the Bucs. That’s not exactly a bold statement. Tampa Bay allows an average of 250.4 yards passing per game, which bodes well for Rodgers and the Packers’ eighth-ranked passing game. However, as you watch Packers online against the Buccaneers today, the Bucs defense could allow running back Eddie Lacy to get back into shape as well.
Lacy has missed two practices with his contact lenses irritating his eyes. Unfortunately, the Packers’ star running back has said he was “nearly blind” without them but won’t wear goggles. Apparently the situation has been fixed during the past two days, because Lacy said he’ll play against the Bucs rather than watch Buccaneers game live from the sideline.
With the NFC North title likely coming down to the last weekend of the season, it’s vital for the Packers to win today in Tampa Bay. Coming off their surprising loss last week, Rodgers will surely have Green Bay back on track as we watch Packers online free today against Tampa Bay.
