Three Packers players the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have to stop
By Rob Leeds
If the Buccaneers want to win Sunday, they have to beat these Packers players first.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a real chance of making it to the Super Bowl for the first time since they won it back in 2003. The Packers are the last NFC team standing in the way of Tom Brady and company, and the matchup with Aaron Rodgers will be one of the best of the season.
The Bucs need to focus on Green Bay before turning their sights to the Super Bowl, and stopping the following players will go a long way in getting the Bucs through this challenging game.
As one of the best players in the NFL right now, Aaron Rodgers can win this game on his own. Rodgers is one of the most talented quarterbacks in NFL history and is the likely MVP, so even if Tom Brady plays at his peak, the Bucs have a tall order ahead.
Tampa Bay is going to have to game plan for Rodgers from every possible angle. The Buccaneers are coming off a great defensive win versus the Saints, but Rodgers is a different story.
The Bucs will have to play a perfect game if they want to keep Rodgers from taking over. The only bad news is that the Buccaneers already played a perfect game against Rodgers this season, so one has to wonder if this is repeatable.
If Tampa Bay can keep Rodgers from working his magic, the Bucs will be in a great position to pull off their first win in an NFC Championship in nearly two decades.
