The Bucs head to Motown to face a Detroit Lions team coming off a disappointing loss to the hobbled Steelers and looking to remind folks that they are a playoff team. The Bucs are simply trying to prove to the league and themselves that the last two weeks are what this team really is and not the previous 8 (or longer).
Which team will show up?
Can the Bucs shiny new toy (Revis) shut down Calvin Johnson? Can Gerald McCoy and the Bucs pass rush annoy Matt Stafford and limit his ability to take those big shots downfield? Will the Bucs resurgent offensive line allow the barely known Bobby Rainey to channel his own inner #20 and open the passing game up for a continually improving rookie signal caller?
I think the Bucs put it together and continue to piss off teams and confuse teh experts. They are 9.5 point dogs in Detroit but I see a 311-30 victory with Bobby Rainey having another great day and Gerald McCoy notching another multi sack day.
