Raheem Morris helped the Packers beat his Buccaneers Sunday

When a team has won 15 straight games, they have a tendency to get into opposing coaches' and players' heads. They often make errors they would not otherwise make that put their teams at a disadvantage.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris fell into that trap Sunday, trying two onside kicks that gave the Green Bay Packers a short field to score. On the second kick, they had the momentum and plenty of time left on the clock.

A team with the advantage the Packers already had does not need any more of them on its own home field, especially when they are a northern team playing a southern one in subfreezing temperatures.

Of course, no team can play full throttle for all 16 regular-season games, but all the opponents of the unbeaten Super Bowl champions will. Other than his two mistakes, Morris got the most out of his 4-5 Bucs, with the Packers victory in doubt into the final minutes.

Where did the Packers fall short of expectations? To what can we credit the eventual win?
