Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette answers Packers with spinning TD run after big Chris Godwin catch
The NFC Championship Game has gotten off to an incredible start as Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers and Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers exchange blows with a trip to Super Bowl LV on the line.
The Buccaneers started the scoring with a Mike Evans touchdown, and the Packers answered back with a 50-yard bomb to Marquez Valdes-Scantling to tie the game at 7-7.
The game wouldn’t be tied for long as Brady and the crew once again drove down the field at Lambeau Field.
The future Hall of Fame quarterback threw a 52-yard heave to Chris Godwin on third down on an incredible catch-and-throw by the Bucs duo.

On the very next play, Bucs running back Leonard Fournette scampered into the end zone on a 20-yard run to give Tampa Bay the lead back.

The former Jaguars rusher almost got tripped up, broke a couple of tackles, spun free, barreled through, and put his head down to get the score and give them the lead again.
Fournette is up to 30 yards on five carries and Brady has 124 yards on just seven completions—with two huge third-down completions to Evans and Godwin.
So far, so good, as both quarterbacks have thrown a touchdown pass as the second quarter is just underway in Green Bay.
Will Brady and Bruce Arians head home with a Super Bowl trip on the line, or will Rodgers and the Packers be headed to their first Super Bowl under the coaching of Matt LaFleur?
