The Green Bay Packers are still figuring out how to operate as a run-first team even though their offense has been decimated by injuries. It was a good chance that their Week 3 game in Florida would be as humid as the weather was.
Brady's team lost to Rodgers' team. Rodgers helped Wisconsin move on from their previous legendary quarterback, who is currently caught up in a scandal involving misappropriated funds from the government in Mississippi.
In the new millennium, there are two quarterbacks. It was Rodgers who had to wait longer than he expected for his name to be called in the 2005 NFL draft, and it was Brady who was drafted in the sixth round in 2000.
It took the team almost the entire game to finally get six points. The only touchdown of the game was scored by them. The Packers wouldn't score a touchdown in the second quarter.
The game was played late in the day. Both Brady and Rodgers are quarterbacks. They don't play against each other a lot, so it's a good choice for FOX to have those two names.
The highlight of the late games on Sunday was Brady leading the Buccaneers down the field for a final drive. Geno Smith was the more entertaining of the two quarterbacks.
The two teams are both 2-1, but their seasons seem to be in opposite directions. Brady looked like he was having little to no fun even though the Bucs defeated the Saints. One of his best offensive weapons was suspended for this week's game after he slammed tablets and started a fight.
After one of the most brief retirements in the history of professional sports, Brady came back to the field. Brady has looked bad on the field. One team has to win the division and the others are quarterbacked by Marcus Mariota, JameisWinston, and Baker Mayfield, but we might finally be seeing Brady hang on one year too long.
The Packers are in better shape. The Packers are at full strength with the return of David Bakhtiari to his left tackle position after two years of dealing with injury. The offensive line is going to open huge holes for the Packers rushing attack, which might be the best one in the league that doesn't include Lamar Jackson. They have a defense that hasn't allowed an opponent to break 25 points.
The Packers and Buccaneers have the same record, but they seem to be going in different directions. The Packers seem to be embracing a new reality while the Buccaneers seem to be fighting through it. On Sunday there was an ugly game with a dramatic end.
Brady and Rodgers were disappointing. The National Football League is in a new era.
