An Aaron Rodgers admission on live TV has prompted a closed-door meeting with the team he beat over the weekend.
After the Packers’ 14-12 victory over the Buccaneers on Sunday, in which Tampa Bay failed a two-point conversion in the closing seconds of the game that would have tied it, Rodgers told Fox’s Tom Rinaldi that the Raymond James Stadium Jumbotron was showing something that “should probably not.” When asked about the comment on Monday, Bucs head coach Todd Bowles said he would “meet this afternoon” in an attempt to determine exactly what happened.
When pressed on what information the Packers could possibly have gleaned from the big screen, Bowles didn’t seem to have any answers.
“I don’t know. I have to see it and talk to the people first,” Bowles said.
Rodgers didn’t reveal exactly what he saw on the Jumbotron that gave the Packers an advantage, but he was seen discussing something with Green Bay head coach Matt LaFleur when the Bucs set up a two-point attempt. Tampa Bay ended up taking a delay of game, and the Packers defended their ensuing play call perfectly when Tom Brady’s pass meant Russell Gage fell harmlessly to the turf.
The loss moved the Bucs to 2-1 on the season, while the Packers’ win also moved them to the same record.
As of Tuesday morning, it’s unclear if the Bucs had any discoveries to share during their meeting.
