Green Bay Packers linebacker Sam Barrington sacks Buccaneers QB Josh McCownTAMPA–Neither team scored in the third quarter, and the Packers led the Bucs, 10-3, heading into the fourth quarter of today’s game at Raymond James Stadium.

Early in the third quarter, the Packers began a drive at their 33-yard line. Aaron Rodgers found Jordy Nelson on third down for 13 yards and a first down at the Packers 47. Rodgers followed with a 12-yard pass to Randall Cobb.

The Packers continued to mix run and pass, but the Bucs defense focused more intently on stopping Eddie Lacy. That opened the passing lanes, and Rodgers threw 15 yards to Cobb to the Tampa 23.

Another Rodgers-to-Cobb pass gained 15 to the 6-yard line. Lacy took the ball to the 1. Two plays later, John Kuhn was stopped for no gain, fourth-and-goal. Rodgers threw incomplete to Cobb and the score remained 10-3.

The Packers defense forced, yet, another punt, and the Packers offense got the ball back at its 37-yard line.
