It's hard to find too many negatives with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Week 6 blowout win over the Green Bay Packers. The 38-10 victory moved the Bucs to first place in the NFC South at 4-2, and it was the Packers' first loss of the season.

Center Ryan Jensen got some bad news, though. His incredible streak of consecutive snaps played came to an end.

Jensen first took over as a full-time NFL starter in 2017 with the Baltimore Ravens before joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2018. He's started every single game, not missing a single snap in that stretch. That means playing over 1,000 snaps in each of the last three years, as well as 402 already this season.

Getting a break at the end of a blowout win can be satisfying, but it must have been a little bittersweet this week for Jensen.

Of course for Tom Brady, the only player ahead of Jensen, it must have been nice to see Jensen pulled from the game at the same time he was.
