Ready for the articles after this game about how Jameis is maturing, he's learning from his early season mistakes, yada, yada, after he shreds the Lions D.

10-6 baby, could have been 11-5 and playoff bound if they had just played one less winning team

Isn't half the starting OL out because of injury today? If that's the case, Stafford is gonna die on the football field. I expect the Bucs to have their best game of the season this afternoon guaranteed.

It's better for the Lions to lose this game because they would need the Panthers, Falcons, and Seahawks to all implode down the stretch to make the playoffs.
Not happening.

For that reason, Lions win and put a big middle finger right in our face again. Draft slot and the idea of firing Caldwell is on the line. Worst case scenario for Lions fans will happen.
Lions 23
Bucs 17

I'm wrapping presents, so I might as well watch it. Although I may have to use the safety scissors.

To make the playoffs, the Lions would need to win out and their conference competitors would need to each lose 2 of 4 games.

I can’t see stafford being effective enough to win this game. He’s playing with his pinky taped to his ring finger.

For Jimmy and JBC’s O to function they need a healthy Stafford converting long third downs.

Win out and see what happens. But if Stafford is hampered throwing the ball, they will finish 6-10.

There was an episode of Coach (with Craig T. Nelson) where they didn't have 11 on field. Coach had the team counting to 11 for a few hours.

You must have missed how there are still a lot of games to play and football is a funny sport.

This is just another game they have to go out there and get better at the things they have identified need to improve.

All of the NFC South teams (excluding TB) own a head to head tie breaker over the Lions.

No playoff hopes
