The Green Bay Packers stood their ground on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ two-point conversion attempt and denied Tom Brady’s chance to send his Week 3 game into overtime on Sunday night.
The game was reduced to execution at the end of the game. Brady’s touchdown pass to Russell Gage Jr. with 14 seconds left came as the play clock neared zero. On their first down, the Buccaneers were called for delaying the game and then failed to convert on the second down.

Aaron Rodgers suggested after the game that he tipped someone off about the Buccaneers’ game clock problems. He was asked about him talking to coach Matt LaFleur and what went through his mind during the 2-point conversion attempt and when Tampa Bay was given a 5-yard delay-of-game penalty.
“They should have done it on the previous play as well, it was a delay on both plays,” Rodgers told FOX’s Tom Rinaldi. “Sometimes you see things in a game. Sometimes the Jumbotron shows things that they probably shouldn’t show, even at home. I just saw something, just passed the information.”

Rodgers finished with 255 passing yards, two touchdown passes and an interception. He was fired once.
Tampa Bay had six penalties for 40 yards and lost two fumbles.
Brady, who completed 31 of 42 passes for 271 yards and a touchdown pass, lamented the team’s lack of execution in his postgame chat with reporters.
Green Bay won 14-12.
This matchup could also be the last between Brady and Rodgers, as the former is reportedly set to retire at the end of the season. The only way that won’t be is if these two teams meet in the playoffs.
