Packers Pace Buccaneers

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(TAMPA BAY) -- The Green Bay Packers took care of business Sunday with a 20-3 win over the Buccaneers.

Aaron Rodgers continued his magnificent season, picking apart the Bucs secondary, completing 31 of 40 passes for 318 yards and a touchdown.

Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson proved to be the reliable targets that Rodgers has trusted all seasons. Cobb caught 11 passes for 131 yards and Nelson 9 passes for 113 yards and the one Packers aerial touchdown.

Eddie Lacy provided balance for the Packers offense, rushing for 99 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries. 

The Packers' defense clamped down on Tampa Bay, as they held Bucs running back Doug Martin to 17 yards on the ground and kept Josh McCown in check. McCown threw for just 147 yards and tossed an interception.

The Packers host the Detroit Lions next week, with the winner earning the NFC North title.
