An absolute demolition of the unbeaten Packers, all the more amazing after being 10-0 down after one quarter having run only a handful of plays.  Jamel Dean’s pick six turned the momentum followed by Mike Edwards’ interception on the next drive. The offense then converted its chances and the Bucs rolled up 38 unanswered points.  Lavonte David and Devin White just dominated proceedings and the Packers threw in the towel midway through the fourth quarter.
