NFL: NFC Divisional Round-Los Angeles Rams at Green Bay Packers Milwaukee Journal Sentinel-USA TODAY NETWORK

What a great matchup in the NFC today. Likely 2020 MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers will host the “I’m always playing in conference title games” Tom Brady and his new team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Game preview

There’s nothing like a title game when you have two surefire Hall of Fame quarterbacks set to duel it out. The winner will go on to Super Bowl LV.

Few have done more with less than Rodgers this season and unless the Buccaneers can stop him, it’ll come down to a shootout. The thing is, they did it already once this year. In Week 6, the Bucs dominated Rodgers handing him his worst game and worst defeat of the season in a 38-10 drubbing. Rodgers finished 16/35 for 160 yards and two interceptions.

If the Bucs can repeat that performance, then obviously they’ll win. I don’t think they will though, but if they can do just enough to create an extra opportunity for Tom Brady and that Bucs offense then they might be able to pull this out.
