The Packers vs Buccaneers live stream is about to get underway and it puts two GOATs on the field to battle it out. Though Tom Brady has taken three of the four regular season matchups against Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay signal caller likely wants to use this NFL live stream to avenge their only playoff meeting.

After dropping their season opener to the Vikings and scoring only one touchdown, the Packers (1-1) needed a “get right game.” Fortunately for Green Bay, they had the Bears next up on their schedule and there has been no team quarterback Aaron Rodgers has dominated more than Chicago. In 23 games against the Bears, Rodgers has posted 23-5 record while throwing for 63 touchdowns and just 10 interceptions. Last week, he notched that 23rd victory over the Bears with a 27-10 win.

Now that Rodgers and company have things back on the right track, they’ll have to focus on stopping this week’s opponent in Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.

Tampa Bay is coming off, literally a hard-fought game in the “Big Easy” as they beat the Saints 20-10. Wide receiver Mike Evans was ejected from the game in the fourth quarter after shoving Saint’s cornerback Marshawn Lattimore to the ground while Lattimore was in-the-midst-of a trash talking session with Brady. Lattimore was also ejected, but only Evans is facing a one-game suspension. The four-time pro bowl wide receiver will miss this matchup against the Packers. 

Aside from Evans, the Bucs will also be without Julio Jones and Chris Godwin due to injury. Tampa signed veteran free agent wide receiver Cole Beasley earlier this week. The now 33-year-old Beasley caught 82 passes for 693 yards last season in Buffalo.  

This game will mark the fifth time Rodgers and Brady have faced each other in the regular season. Brady has the upper hand in that series with three victories. This will also be the first matchup between these two teams since the Bucs handed the Pack a 31-26 loss in the NFC Championship game following the 2020 regular season.

According to the Action Network (opens in new tab) the Buccaneers are a 2.5-point favorite.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $50 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $70 per month.

Oh, and if you're OK with just watching the Packers vs Buccaneers live stream on mobile devices (phones and tablets), it's also available on the $4.99 per month NFL Plus.
