NFL Expert Picks, Score Predictions: Detroit Lions vs. TB Buccaneers – Pride Of Detroit

The Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers meet on Sunday at 3:00 p.m. ET for a chance to advance to the NFC Championship Game. The San Francisco 49ers are waiting there after their exciting victory over the Green Bay Packers on Saturday evening.

The Lions are hoping to reach their second NFC title game in franchise history after the team has already had a historically good season. The Buccaneers largely played a minor role this year, narrowly escaping the poor NFC South as winners. However, they've turned it into a nice little series here, winning six of their last seven games.

But the Lions have faced hot teams before and cooled them down considerably. Consider the Denver Broncos, who had won six of seven games before the Lions eliminated them on a Saturday night. Or the Los Angeles Rams, who won seven of eight games last week before the Lions sent them packing.

Will the Lions be able to defeat another streaking team or will their magical season end here?
