Packers Buccaneers Issues
Things To Watch On Sunday
My take on Sunday? I think the Packers get some resistance early from the Buccaneers, and eventually roll the other Bay 38-24.
To be honest, if I was in the Packers organization, I'd be more concerned about the game in Detroit on Thanksgiving day, the third game in 11 days.
But a couple factors will be at work here in the Battle of the Bays:
The power of motivation. The last time they played in 2009, it was arguably the Packers worst game of the past 3 seasons. Or at least the fourth quarter was one of the worst quarters of the Mike McCarthy era, as the Bucs broke out the Creamsicle uniforms, and then watched the Packers melt down under the heat...losing 38-28 as Tampa Bay broke an 0-17 skid.
Sure, the Packers will have to have better and sure tackling to bring down LeGarrette Blount, and be aware of Albert Haynesworth, who can be a beast when motivated, or could show up just to collect a check.
