While the pick-six was was the first score for the Buccaneers in the game, it was also the first interception of the season for Rodgers—and his first in the Packers quarterback’s last 157 pass attempts. Following questions over his ability to maintain a high level of play, the future Hall of Fame passer has been revitalized thanks to his pairing with head coach Matt LeFleur.
Jamel Dean and the Buccaneers, however, don’t seem to be impressed. In jumping a passing route intended for wide receiver Davante Adams, Dean recorded his third career interception and only his first touchdown, providing points for an offense that has struggled to start the day.
The Buccaneers were then further helped by a second interception on Rodgers the following series, which the Buccaneers used to score from the goal line to take a 14-10 lead.
Sunday is a star-studded matchup between the pair of future Canton-bound quarterbacks in Buccaneers’ Brady and Packers’ Rodgers.
