Packers vs. Buccaneers Score Update: Surprisingly close game

New, comments
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are somehow keeping this game with the Green Bay Packers close. Despite being outgained 318 to 95 yards. Despite punting on all but one offensive possession. Despite being incapable of blocking anyone, the Bucs are still down just 10-3. Somehow, they're still in this game, kind of.

As has been the case since week seven, the Bucs defense has played well this game. Despite giving up yardage, they've held up in the red zone, even getting a fourth-down stop on the goal-line. While the offense remains putrid, the Tampa Bay defense is at least showing it's good enough to win games -- and that'll be a big positive for next season.

So here we head into the fourth quarter, with the Packers leading 10-3. There's an actual chance the Bucs manage to win this game. Not a big chance, but a chance nonetheless.
