The Lions are still in first place in the NFC North, but they hit a stumbling block last week when they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 37-27. Detroit entered the game as 3-point favorites but failed to cover by losing. The Lions fell to 6-4 in the standings and 5-5 against the spread. Since the loss was to an AFC team, it doesn't affect any tiebreakers in the playoff seedings.
The Bucs have finally shown some signs of life, getting their second win in a row last week. They crushed the Atlanta Falcons, 41-28, and easily covered the spread as 2.5-point favorites. The Bucs improved to 2-8 on the season and 4-6 against the spread.
