USA TODAY Sports', Packers, depleted Buccaneers

The clear headliner of the NFL’s Week 3 menu is Sunday afternoon’s matchup between a pair of NFC heavyweights, the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Aaron Rodgers may be a better golfer than Tom Brady, but he’s 1-3 against the GOAT on the gridiron and has been on the losing end of their past three matchups. Brady is 2-0 against the Pack since arriving in Tampa, including a memorable win in the 2020 NFC title game at Lambeau Field.

Sunday, the teams will square off at Raymond James Stadium, the Bucs looking to improve to 3-0 while the Packers hope to leave Florida with the clubs deadlocked at 2-1. Hardly a consensus among our panel of experts, though four give Brady and Co. the edge despite the absence of suspended WR Mike Evans.
