The Green Bay Packers took down an adversary on the road and continued on a 2021-like route on Sunday afternoon at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. 

Packers Punter Pat O'Donnell placed five of his seven punts within the 20-yard mark, with one that was hit at the 2-yard line by Keisean Nixon.

The work of O'Donnell, Nixon and Ford was the main reason the Bucs kicked off every one of their drives that were not turnovers at the 25-yard-mark or even worse.

In the absence of Sammy Watkins on injured reserve and Christian Watson out while nursing an injury to the hamstring, Romeo Doubs finally got a chance to be a prominent player.

Doubs pulled off an impressive catch in the second quarter that required all hands to reach 15 yards. In 3 games, Doubs has the most catches for the club with 14. catch.

On the third drive that followed, the Packers moved for 60 yards. They had the chance to open the game, but a mishap changed everything.

The Packers have lost Jaire Alexander in just six games after he injured his groin. In the process, Rasul Douglas was moved from the slot to the outside. 

An interesting twist was that Packers Coach Matt LaFleur rotated David Bakhtiari and Yosh Nijman into and out of the left tackle.

In all but two plays (first and final), The Packers were the most dominant defensive team and showed consistently impressive responses to any challenge.

The game was fascinating until the very end, and both teams put up an intense battle with one another. This resulted in the Packers winning 14-12 over the Buccaneers.
