Lions Remain a Favorite For the Super Bowl
The Detroit Lions enter this game fresh off of a tough matchup against the Carolina Panthers that ended with them losing 42-24. Quarterback Jared Goff stood out, completing 20 of 38 passing attempts for 236 passing yards, three passing touchdowns, one rushing touchdown, and zero interceptions while running back David Montgomery also contributed, rushing for 109 yards while scoring one touchdown.
Buccaneers Dominate Their Division
On the other side, Baker Mayfield and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming off of a bye week, holding down the top spot in the NFC South with an impressive 3-1 overall record. Mayfield performed impressively against the New Orleans Saints by completing 25 out of 32 passes for 246 passing yards, three passing touchdowns, and only one interception – an exceptional showing that fans should expect him to repeat against the Lions who often allow significant passing yardage.
Though the Detroit Lions currently boast a -3.0 point spread advantage, this matchup could see over 43.5 total points scored between Mayfield and Goff. With an over/under set at that number and only two points short from reaching it last week by their offense alone, this could become an exciting offensive battle!
NFL Latest Odds: DET -3 ; O/U 43.5
At first glance, each team in this matchup possesses unique strengths and vulnerabilities. For instance, the Detroit Lions boast a formidable running attack led by Zonovan Knight who could gain 44.0 yards; their commitment to running could prove pivotal in controlling the clock and keeping the Buccaneers’ powerful offense off of the field.
Mayfied’s Contribution to Tampa
On the other hand, Baker Mayfield and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have proven effective at passing. Mayfield’s expected performance of 1.58 touchdown passes against 0.58 interceptions shows his ability to make smart decisions under pressure and contain Mayfield and his passing attack. Defending against Mayfield could prove difficult for the Lions’ defensive unit.
Rachaad White’s contributions to the Buccaneer’s victories cannot be discounted. He provides a consistent running option, averaging 61.0 yards and scoring 0.25 touchdowns on an average game day. If the Lion’s defense struggles to stop him from running the ball effectively, White may make an indelible mark on its outcome.
After their disappointing loss to the Carolina Panthers last week, the Detroit Lions look to rebound and exploit any vulnerabilities in Tampa Bay’s defense. Jared Goff showed his ability to lead their offense effectively last week; they will seek to build on this success moving forward.
