Packers vs Buccaneers Predictions and Picks
This Buccaneers team is too undisciplined to beat the Green Bay Packers this early in the season, especially with the way the Pack and Rodgers have been producing when their shutdown defense isn’t on the field.
Packers -2 (-110)

This Green Bay Packers team hasn’t played since Week 4 when they beat the Falcons on Monday Night Football, but that shouldn’t matter much to Aaron Rodgers’ crew, who are currently ranked first in points scored per game with 38 and second in offensive yards per matchup with 445.5.
Shouldn’t be a problem for the second stingiest defense in the league, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers allowing opponents less than 300 yards per game on offense and holding them to just 22.4 points per game.
These two NFC teams have met each other 55 times before (including 1 postseason game), with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers winning 21 of those games and the Green Bay Packers winning 33 of them, with a tie in there, as well.

Can the Green Bay Packers Continue Their Win Streak After Their Bye?
With the amount of injuries an NFL team suffers throughout the regular season, the bye week becomes a critical period of recovery, so when it is scheduled during the year becomes almost as important as the actual time off.
The Packers got an early bye in Week 4, something that is typically not as helpful as having the time to rest and recover is towards the latter part of the season.
But for players like WR Davante Adams (below), that extra time off this early on may have been just what he needed to get himself back in the lineup for this Week 6 matchup with the Bucs.
Can Bucs QB Tom Brady Recover After His Week 5 Senior Moment?
At the end of the Buccaneers Week 5 loss to the Chicago Bears, QB Tom Brady held up four fingers after his team failed to convert for a first down, indicating that he might have thought the previous play was a third-down instead of a fourth.
Call it a senior moment (he is in his forties, after all, considered “old” for the NFL) or a temporary memory lapse, but it was uncharacteristic of Brady regardless, typically a pro when it comes to details like that.
The kind of meticulousness that Brady could depend on in New England to surround him is also suddenly gone on this undisciplined Bucs team who currently leads the league in total penalties with 42.
Packers Key Player: (WR) Davante Adams
There are solid rumors floating around that injured Packers receiver Davante Adams will play in this Week 6 matchup, his strained hamstring obviously getting the rest and healing it needed during the team’s Week 5 bye.
Adams has missed the last two games due to this injury, his absence missed by QB Aaron Rodgers but still, the team managed to win those games even without him in the lineup.
But they are better with Adams playing, as evidenced in Week 1 when he caught 14 passes for 156 yards and 2 touchdowns in the team’s victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
Buccaneers Key Player: (TE) Rob Gronkowski
Not easy to take a year off any job and jump right back in, and that is especially true for playing tight end in the NFL, especially at the level that Bucs Rob Gronkowski is known to play.
This season he has been targeted 20 times and has caught 12 of those passes for 140 yards and no touchdowns (yet), numbers that are low for one of the greatest at his position to ever play.
Watch for Gronk and GOAT Brady to start clicking more as the season progresses and they begin developing the same type of chemistry they shared for years (and several Super Bowl rings) together in New England.
