Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Detroit Lions

The Lions went to Tampa Bay in Week 6 this season and rolled to a 20-6 victory. Neither team had much success running the ball, with the Lions managing just 1.8 yards per carry with Jahmyr Gibbs out and David Montgomery injured during the game. The Bucs dropped four of their next five games to fall into third place in the NFC South before climbing back to win the division. 

Detroit averaged 30.5 points per game with a 6-2 record at home this season. The Lions averaged 138.5 rushing yards per game in those contests and averaged the most rushing touchdowns per game (1.6) overall this season. 

Tampa’s defense allowed the sixth-fewest rushing yards per game (95.3) this season and held opponents to the third-lowest touchdown conversion rate (42.6%) on red zone possessions. 

After leading the Bucs to a Super Bowl in 2021, Tom Brady scored a Wild Card win over Philadelphia and lost to the Rams in the Divisional Round in 2022. Brady led the Bucs to another NFC South title last season, and they fell 31-14, in the Wild Card round to Dallas. 

The Lions had lost nine straight playoff games before beating the Rams in the Wild Card round. These franchises met in a 1997 Wild Card matchup, and Tampa Bay emerged with a 20-10 victory. 

Prior to this season, the Bucs won the previous two regular-season meetings over Detroit in 2020 and 2019. Tampa averaged 541.5 yards of offense in those blowout victories.
