STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES — The Packers have won their last nine regular-season games. They also had an NFC divisional playoff victory over Seattle before losing in the NFC championship game at San Francisco last season. … The Packers are off to their fastest start since 2015, when they won their first six games before finishing 10-6 and losing to Arizona in the NFC divisional playoffs. … The Packers are the first team in NFL history to score at least 150 points and commit no turnovers through the first four games of a season. They also have scored at least 30 points in each of their first four games without turning over the ball. The only team with a longer streak of consecutive games with 30-plus points and no turnovers is the 2010 New England Patriots, who did that in seven straight games and had current Buccaneers QB Tom Brady. … Green Bay leads the NFL in yards per play (6.83) and time of possession (34:20). ... Buccaneers QB Tom Brady has thrown 10 TD passes vs. three interceptions in five career starts against Green Bay. ... Tampa Bay has outscored opponents 48-14 in the first quarter through five games. ... TE Rob Gronkowski has yet to score his first touchdown for the Bucs. He and Brady teamed on 78 regular-season TDs with New England — one shy of matching Dan Marino and Mark Clayton for fourth most for a quarterback/receiver tandem in NFL history. ... WR Mike Evans is tied for the league lead with six TD receptions. ... Tampa Bay’s defence is ranked No. 1 against the run, No. 2 overall. The unit has held opponents to less than 50 yards rushing the past three weeks. The 2016 Packers were the last team to do that in four consecutive games. ... With RBs Leonard Fournette and LeSean McCoy slowed by injuries, Ronald Jones has topped 100 yards rushing the past two games. ... Fantasy tip: Tampa Bay’s receiving corps is banged-up, though Chris Godwin (hamstring) returned to practice on a limited basis this week. Scotty Miller (hip/groin) was also limited early in the week after not being targeted at all during last week’s loss to the Bears. Evans (ankle) has been less than 100 per cent the past two weeks, yet is the only player in the league who’s scored in each of his team’s games.
