Buccaneers Fight Back In Lambeau, Trail Packers 21-19 In 4th.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are playing their best game of the 2011-2012 season on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field against the 9-0 Green Bay Packers. After trailing at half time by 11, the Bucs have scored 9 unanswered points and now find themselves just 2 points behind the dominant Packers club at 21-19 in the 4th quarter.

Josh Freeman has remained upright most of the day, and has looked sharp in the second half, hitting Winslow for big first downs and Mike Williams has gotten involved with a 9-yard touchdown. LeGarrette Blount has also eclipsed 100-yards on the day, his 6th game over the century mark, and has a score to go with it.

The Buccaneers defense, who was much maligned for their effort against Houston last week, has held Aaron Rodgers and company in check, keeping them entirely off the scoreboard so far in the second half. However, Rodgers and the Packers offense are currently driving.

No matter what the final outcome of this game is, Tampa Bay has to be pleased with how their club has responded against the defending Super Bowl champions.
