• Packers vs. Buccaneers picks and analysis

Green Bay had more to love about Week 2 than they did Week 1. However, despite their home win over the Chicago Bears, the Packers are aware that they have not been perfect. Some shaky snaps and a fumbled handoff were notable.

With a solid defense and an opportunistic attack, the Bucs won their first two games. However, Tom Brady is starting to experience health problems and needs some help.

Bucs quarterback Tom Brady was rattled during the team’s Week 2-road win at New Orleans. He was seen throwing a tablet on his bench and engaging in shouting matches with Marshon Lattimore, Saints defensive back.

The Hall of Famer was able to overcome his frustrations and lead Tampa Bay to a 17-point fourth quarter, en route to a win.

Despite the earlier expulsion of Bucs receiver Mike Evans, and Chris Godwin and Julio Jones being sidelined by injuries, the rally was successful. Can Brady still shine against a Packers defense that favors the pass over the run, with Evans being suspended for an altercation with Lattimore Evans is also questionable.

We, and the Green Bay secondary, think otherwise.

* Leonard Fournette has more than 103.5 receiving and rushing yards

The Green Bay defense has allowed 306. rushing yards in two weeks, which is the fifth-highest number in the NFL. The unit has been trending downwards, having given up 90 yards to Minnesota’s Dalvin cook before Chicago’s David Montgomery ran for 122 yards last week.

Fournette is not afraid to carry a heavy load. He had 127 yards of ground in the season opener. Fournette has also been reliable in passing the ball, particularly with questions at receiver.

Our Pick: Leonard Fournette with more than 103.5 receiving and rushing yards

* Scored below 42.5 points

Aaron Rodgers, the Packers’ receiver coach, has his own issues.
The Buc’s defense has been stingiest in the league scoring just 13 points while allowing only 10 sacks, which is an NFL record. Tampa Bay has also produced six turnovers and returned one for a touchdown.

This shouldn’t be boring with star quarterbacks on both teams. It could be low-scoring due to offensive struggles and trends. Choose: Below 42 points to be scored.

Our pick: Scored below 42.5 points
