Quarterback Aaron Rodgers returned to practice on Saturday in hopes of getting back into the lineup to aid in the Green Bay Packers' desperate playoff push. Brett Hundley had runs of 18 and 7 yards on the drive to start overtime before the quarterback handed off to Jones for his only carry of the afternoon. Despite missing three full games, Montgomery still had the most carries among all Packers running backs this season. The Bucs never saw the ball in the extra period. But with Williams needing a rest, Jones entered the game and scored the game-winner.

As for who would win each tiebreaker based on each possible scenario, remember: Who owns tiebreakers can EASILY change based on results of games to come, especially if those tiebreakers don't involve head-to-head play - ESPECIALLY if it is a multi-team tiebreaker, so take any "they own the tiebreaker" statements with much more than a grain of salt. Winston and Co. couldn't take advantage, and Packers linebacker Kyler Fackrell blew through Tampa Bay's interior protection to block the punt.

Clay Matthews, who had 3.5 sacks all season, had 2.5 on Sunday for his most in game since 2014. Dean Lowry had a sack, two tackles for loss and a fumble return for a touchdown. It led to a five-play, 45-yard drive capped by a 1-yard touchdown run from Williams. Justin Evans made the pick. One play after being two yards past the line of scrimmage on a touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson, he hit tight end Cameron Brate for an 11-yard touchdown on third-and-goal.

Green Bay finished with only 77 net yards passing, with Hundley going 13-of-22 for 84 yards with an interception.

Peyton Barber had 102 yards for 23 carries. But the defense couldn't hold up in overtime for the last-place Buccaneers (4-8).
