TAMPA, Fla. -- This story speaks for itself and goes way beyond football.

Tampa Bay kicker Matt Bryant made the most of a horrible situation, kicking a game-winning field goal four days after his infant son died.

Bryant connected on a 24-yard attempt with 2:26 remaining to put the Bucs ahead, 23-21, and defensive end Gaines Adams backed that up by intercepting Aaron Rodgers.

The Bucs left the decision on whether to play up to Bryant, and he also kicked two first-half field goals in a 30-21 victory against Green Bay.

I'm heading down to the locker room right now and will be back with what Bryant and his teammates have to say about the emotional day.
