GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- It was about this time last year Aaron Rodgers began his “run the table” push to the Conference Championship. The Packers will be without Rodgers for at least the next two weeks, but they still believe they can win out.

“We’ve got to win each game and we’ve got to take it one game at a time," said Packers quarterback Brett Hundley. "We can’t look farther ahead than this week. It doesn’t matter what comes next week if we don’t get the win this week. I always feel confident in my preparation each week and I feel confident in this offense. We can get the job done no matter who’s on the field.”

“It’s definitely not an unfamiliar road. We’d like it to be unfamiliar," said wide receiver Davante Adams with a smile. "But we’ve been down this road before and I know we can rally and with the guys we have in this locker room we can get it done.”

“We have to win this week," said linebacker Clay Matthews. "Because we’re in this position now where we have a chance believe it or not after all these losses, but it starts with a win. We were close Sunday night, but close doesn’t cut it. This week is the week.”

The Packers are looking to stay relevant in the playoff hunt with a win and hoping they can do it in front of the home crowd this Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The last victory at home for the Packers came September 28th against the Chicago Bears.

“I can tell you there’s not a worse feeling in my coaching career walking into that tunnel after a loss. Trust me it hits all of us," said head coach Mike McCarthy. "You need to win your home games and obviously we need to win all of our games, especially these two at home.”

The Packers play the Buccaneers Sunday at noon on FOX 11.
