Buccaneers lead Packers 7-0 after first quarter

The Packers won the opening coin toss and deferred. Green Bay forced Tampa Bay into three third-down situations but Tom Brady completed three passes for 56 yards, including a 15-yard touchdown pass to Mike Evans to give the Buccaneers a 7-0 lead with 10 minutes, 59 seconds left in the first quarter.

The Packers converted their initial first down with a 14-yard pass to Marcedes Lewis in the middle of the field but would have to punt after Aaron Rodgers was sacked on third down.

With Tampa Bay facing third-and-10, Kenny Clark pushed Aaron Stinnie back to sack Brady for a 5-yard loss.

The Packers faced third-and-15 from their own five but Rodgers ran right to extend the play and found Allen Lazard near the sideline for a leaping 23-yard catch. Davante Adams then picked up 15 off a quick flare to end the first quarter.
