GREEN BAY – The Packers were down two of their top perimeter weapons on Sunday in Tampa, but that didn't stop the offense from spreading the ball around to several contributors when needed.

That was clearly on display during Green Bay's second touchdown drive, when six different players accounted for at least five yards apiece. For that reason, it's the Chevy Drive of the Week.

The Packers had opened the game with an effective ball-control drive, chewing up 75 yards over 10 plays and 6 minutes, 4 seconds to take a 7-3 lead. Their second drive covered 71 yards in 12 plays and 6:49 and featured a trio of third-down conversions.

The first came on third-and-8 as QB Aaron Rodgers found TE Robert Tonyan for 9 yards to get things going. A 9-yard completion to WR Romeo Doubs followed by a 3-yard run from RB AJ Dillon moved the chains again.

A 7-yard connection to WR Allen Lazard converted the next third down, and another 7-yard completion to Dillon after a 2-yard run by RB Aaron Jones set up third-and-1 from the Tampa Bay 29-yard line.

Running bootleg action to the left, Rodgers waited for the defender in the flat to commit to him, leaving TE Tyler Davis wide open for a 23-yard catch-and-run, down to the 6. From there, Rodgers hit Lazard on a quick slant, and the Packers were up 14-3.
