The 2022 NFL season is finally here and the Week 3 schedule is chock full of exciting showdowns. One of the most anticipated matchups of the week is a clash between two NFC heavyweights as the Green Bay Packers travel to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

After a disappointing Week 1 performance, the Packers bounced back with a 27-10 win over the Chicago Bears. Week 2 also brought positivity for the Buccaneers, who handed a 20-10 defeat to the rival New Orleans Saints.

This could be the last time quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady meet, meaning pride is on the line. Can the Packers get the road win at Raymond James Stadium? Or will the Bucs find a way to remain perfect this fall?

Here's what projection models and experts across the industry have to say about the Packers vs Buccaneers Week 3 matchup.
