LACY TAKES ONE TO THE HOUSE

Late in a scoreless first quarter, Packers RB Eddie Lacy took a pitch to the left, broke one tackle at the line of scrimmage and was off to the races for a 44-yard touchdown run. The big play pushed Lacy over 1,000 rushing yards on the season as he became just the fifth player in franchise history with back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons.

PEPPERS AND MATTHEWS GO BACK-TO-BACK

With the Packers leading 13-3 in the fourth quarter, LBs Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews sacked Tampa Bay QB Josh McCown on consecutive plays. Both players finished with multi-sack games as the defense recorded seven sacks in all, a season high.

NELSON FINDS THE END ZONE

Three plays after making a tip-toe catch to put the ball on the 1-yard line, WR Jordy Nelson caught a quick slant for a TD for the game's final points. Nelson had nine catches for 113 yards on the day, his seventh game this season with at least 100 receiving yards.
