The most hated player in football, Tom Brady, and his merry band of ass pirates are on their way to the Frozen Tundra to learn the hard way why it’s important to get that coveted #1 seed and home field advantage. Instead of being 70 degrees in Tampa Bay, the game will be played in the icy cold January Wisconsin weather in the 20s. AKA, the way football was meant to be played. Something to keep in mind, however, is that Brady certainly has some experience playing in the cold.
The good news is the Bucs will not have to drive far if they want to watch the Packers win the Super Bowl in person.
One recent development that works greatly in the Packs favor will be the absence of Antonio Brown. Brown has played a large role in the Bucs’ current six game winning streak going into tonight’s matchup.
As far as Packer roster moves this week, CB Tramon Williams, recently added to the practice squad, has been moved to the primary roster. DL Brian Price and CB KeiVarae Russell were also moved from the practice squad to the primary roster.
Once again, a limited amount of tickets were sold (6,500) so there will be some fans in attendance.
Now for some bad news: the broadcast crew for the game will be Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Erin Andrews, and Tom Rinaldi. No doubt poor Ted learned of this and decided to check out before the game.
William Hill Sportsbooks has the Packers as the -3 favorite.
