Aaron Rodgers, Packers finally answer back with Robert Tonyan TD vs. Buccaneers
With the deficit at 28-10 and Tom Brady doing Tom Brady things, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ offense needed to score—and they finally got back in the end zone.

Rodgers stood in and orchestrated an eight-play, 75-yard drive that ended in a touchdown strike to tight end Robert Tonyan to bring the score to 28-17.
With the Buccaneers defense causing fits for Rodgers and the Packers, he came out and settled in and had no problem driving down the field.
He completed passes to five different receivers on the drive and ended up with Tonyan scoring the touchdown—his first of the 2021 postseason.
If the Packers want any chance at coming back and heading to the Super Bowl, Rodgers will have to lead this team—even more so with running back Aaron Jones questionable to return after suffering a chest injury on the big hit that caused the fumble.
The game is not over by any means, and Davante Adams has just four catches for 34 yards thus far, so maybe Rodgers can find ways to get the ball to one of the best receivers in the NFL and lead this team to yet another Super Bowl berth.
