Packers race out to 14-3 lead over Bucs thanks to pair of impressive drives

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers came into Sunday’s showdown with the Green Bay Packers at 2-0 after allowing just 13 points, seven third-down conversions in 28 attempts and two touchdowns during the first two games of the 2022 season.

Game 3 isn’t going quite as well.

In fact, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers beat those numbers during the first two drives on Sunday.

The Packers engineered touchdown drives of 10 plays and 12 plays, featuring five third-down conversions, to take a 14-3 lead in the first half at Raymond James Stadium.

Rodgers has completed 12 of his first 13 passes for 120 yards and touchdowns to Romeo Doubs and Allen Lazard. His passer rating through two drives is 144.7.

Seven different players have made catches for the Packers, and Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon already have 12 touches for 40 yards in two drives.

The Packers have nine first downs, 146 yards on 22 plays and scored touchdowns on both red-zone trips. Rodgers has hit Doubs and tight end Tyler Davis for plays of at least 20 yards.

The Packers defense gave up an opening-drive field goal but have since clamped down. Rashan Gary ended the latest drive with a sack on third down.

Can the Packers keep rolling in the sun at Raymond James Stadium?
