The Detroit Lions will look to strengthen their case for a spot in the playoffs with a win over the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

The Lions (8-4) put on an offensive display on Thanksgiving while the Buccaneers (2-10) continue to remind everyone that they are not a very good football team. Coverage of Sunday’s game will air on FOX beginning at 1:00 pm ET from Ford Field in Detroit, MI.

The Odds: The Lions are 9.5 point favorites against the Buccaneers. The over/under for this game is 41.5 total points.

Given that the Lions are at home and coming off a thrashing of the Bears it would seem hard for the Buccaneers to stay in this one. However, much like the Cowboys, the Lions continue to have to answer questions about their ability to play late in the season. Will this be the year they step up or do the Buccaneers sting them for their third win of the year?
