The 4-8 Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the 6-6 Detroit Lions today, as the former try to save face and the latter hope to come closer to a wild card playoff spot. The Bucs definitively lost their playoff chances on Thursday, when the Atlanta Falcons beat the New Orleans Saints to ruin whatever tiny hopes were remaining in the hearts of Bucs fans.
Those hopes don’t need to be extinguished for this game, though: the Bucs are only three-point underdogs, which means they have a decent chance of winning. Dirk Koetter would surely like that, because if he keeps losing games, he’s likely to be out of a job come January. And after these Lions, the Bucs face just their three division teams, all of them sporting winning records.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch today’s game.
