The Packers cashed in, with Aaron Rodgers eventually hitting Davante Adams for a touchdown. The Packers then missed a 2-point conversion, making the score 28-23.
This has been an eventful game so far. Brady has thrown three touchdown passes, including a hail mary in the closing seconds of the first half.
Former Penn State receiver Chris Godwin has also been good so far. He caught four passes for 99 yards in the first half, including a deep ball that set up Tampa’s second touchdown of the day.
Amos is in his sixth NFL season out of Penn State and his second year with the Packers. He was originally drafted in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears.
He recorded two interceptions during the regular season and entered this game with seven career interceptions.
The Packers were 4-point favorites before the game.
