The Green Bay Packers head into this game after grabbing their first win of the season against the Chicago Bears. They dominated the game, and their offence was too much for the Chicago Bears defence to handle. However, in their last outing, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers grabbed their second win in two games against the New Orleans Saints. The Buccaneers' defence was crucial to their victory as they couldn’t get it going on offence. The Packers have to find a way past the Buccaneers' defence to have any shot at winning this game.
The match starts at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday, 25 September 2022. The game time by GMT is 8:25 p.m. GMT on Sunday, September 25. The match venue is Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida

Green Bay Packers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers predictions and betting tips
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are down with significant injuries, especially on the offensive ends. The Buccaneers will be without top receiver Mike Evans, and Chris Godwin and Julio Jones may also miss the game through injury. Due to the absences on offence, the Buccaneers have had to rely heavily on their defence to keep them going in the two games this season. The Buccaneers' defence, which allows just 6.5 points per game on average, is ranked No. 1 in terms of points allowed and No. 5 in terms of yards allowed. They will have to put up another exceptional performance to earn the Buccaneers their first home win this season.
Meanwhile, for the Green Bay Packers, the veteran quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, is still trying to adjust to his new look offence. With how they performed against the Bears, especially with running back Aaron Jones being the heart of the offence, they might as well be on the right track to be one of the most dynamic offence in the NFC North. The Packers looked solid but on offence and defence, and I’d back them to get things going against an incomplete Buccaneers side and get the much-needed win on the road.
Predictions for the game are the Green Bay Packers to win and under 41.5 points.
