For the second time in a month, Iggy beat the Packers with a late fieldgoal, this one coming after an eight- play, 72-yard drive that ended with Vinny hitting Bruce Hill for the tying score just inside the two minute warning. Vinny did throw four picks that somewhat negated his 300-yard passing day, but the little guy made up for it once again for the Buccaneers.
