The Packers have been plagued by injuries this season losing Aaron Rodgers, multiple offensive linemen and two running backs in Aaron Jones and Ty Montgomery for parts of the season. The Packers play the Browns next week before Rodgers can return in two weeks against the Panthers. Despite missing three full games, Montgomery still had the most carries among all Packers running backs this season.

Presented with an opportunity to take the lead - twice - in the final two minutes of regulation, Hundley could only manage a game-tying field-goal drive after a third-and-1 pass to Jordy Nelson (five catches for 17 yards) was stopped for no gain on the first try, and nothing on the second try from his own 38-yard line with 44 seconds left. But with Williams needing a rest, Jones entered the game and scored the game-winner.

Mason Crosby's 22-yard field goal tied the game at 20 with 2:01 left, giving the team a lift after the Bucs tried to wear out the Packers on the run.

Clay Matthews, who had 3.5 sacks all season, had 2.5 on Sunday for his most in game since 2014. The ball popped loose and was caught by defensive tackle Dean Lowry, who sprinted 62 yards for a touchdown that made it 17-7.

The Packers also got a blocked punt, with Kyler Fackrell getting to Bucs punter Bryan Anger. Justin Evans made the pick. He had a monster final season at UTEP, rushing for 1,773 yards and 17 touchdowns as he began to really catch the attention of National Football League scouts. He passed for 270 yards and two touchdowns and running back Peyton Barber ran for 102 yards. But the defense couldn't hold up in overtime for the last-place Buccaneers (4-8). Making his sixth start with Rodgers sidelined with a broken collarbone, Hundley completed 13-of-22 passes for 84 yards and one interception.
