Packers prepare for BuccaneersSubmitted: 12/20/2014
GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers want to put last week's disappointing loss to Buffalo behind them.

They will rebound with an away game against the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Packers' offense struggled last week.

They only scored one touchdown in the whole game.

Players say their troubles last week will give them a new sense of passion as they look for their sixth straight playoff appearance.

"I don't think it ever left but there's just a re-focus," says Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb. "You're reignited with that passion and understanding what's before you and the opportunity we have. I think it's known that we're a good team but for us to be a great team we have to handle our business."

Green Bay's defense played well last week.

They only gave up four field goals, but players say they aren't looking back at that game.

"To be honest with you, we're not allowed to talk about last week, so Tampa Bay we're focused on and that's what we're looking forward to going into Sunday," says safety Morgan Burnett. "We're looking at going into a hostile environment and trying to get a win."

The Packers and the Buccaneers will kick off Sunday at 12:00 p.m.

The 49-year-old Chryst had two prior stints as an assistant coach for the Badgers. Most notably, he was part of the Wisconsin staff from 2005-11, helping the Badgers to five double-digit victory seasons and two Rose Bowls.

He was coordinator in 2011 when the high-scoring Badgers featured quarterback Russell Wilson and running back Montee Ball.
