For the first time since 2014, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers handed the legendary Tom Brady a regular-season loss. The two have met just five times throughout their storied careers, with Brady holding a slim 3-2 edge.

This was far from the prettiest Packers performance of the year. The team nailed down a hard-fought and gritty 14-12 victory despite not scoring in the second half.

Rodgers spoke with the press following this game, and offered a bizarre and cryptic key to the Packers victory. One that involved the Jumbotron at Tampa Bay's Raymond James Stadium.

According to insider Ted Nguyen, Rodgers said he saw something "they shouldn't have shown" on the Jumbotron before "he passed on the information." Nguyen infers this meant passing on the information to his defense, but either way, that's the entire extent of Rodgers' comments.

Could this have been a key snap count or Buccaneers' offense read that popped up on the video board? Honestly, it's anybody's guess.

Rodgers clearly has a flair for the dramatic. Just a few months ago he decided to show up to training camp with an interesting wardrobe ensemble. He may be bizarre at times, but he's one of the best quarterbacks on the planet, and that's why Packers nation loves him.

Green Bay moves on from Tampa Bay and the new "Jumbotron scandal" with a 2-1 record in hand. They'll face the New England Patriots in Week 4, and open up that matchup as early 9.5-point favorites, according to NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
