What channel is Packers vs. Buccaneers on today? Time, TV schedule for Week 6 NFL game

Two of the NFL’s greatest quarterbacks in the history of the game square off in Fox’s America’s Game of the Week as Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady duel it out for one of the last times between the two.

The Packers (4-0) are fresh off a bye week and in possession of first place of the NFC North. Rodgers may be on the back-nine of his career, but he is putting together one of his finest seasons. His 8.7 yards per pass attempt are third in the NFL, and he is the only qualified quarterback yet to throw an interception this season. Green Bay may not have many big-name receivers, but Aaron Jones is one of the best on the ground. He averages 5.8 yards an attempt, and his 93.5 yards per game is the third best in the NFL. 

Tampa (3-2) is in a dog fight to win the NFC South. The Buccaneers are tied with Carolina and New Orleans having lost to the Saints and beaten the Panthers in Weeks 1 and 2. Brady and company have had plenty of time to prepare for Green Bay after not playing since “Thursday Night Football” when Chicago pulled out a close victory. Brady has had all week to simmer and listen to criticism of his fourth-quarter gaffe when he thought he had five downs on the game’s final drive.

This is the third time that Brady and Rodgers have squared off. The pair split the previous two matchups with Brady and the Patriots winning most recently in 2018.
