Game Preview

The Detroit Lions have a chance to run away with the NFC North. They can keep trending in that direction if they knock off the NFC South-leading Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the road this Sunday.

The Lions (4-1) already hold a two-game lead over second-place Green Bay and a three-game advantage over Minnesota and Chicago. Detroit is coming off a 42-24 thumping of winless Carolina.

“Any time you win, it’s fun,” coach Dan Campbell said. “It makes everything a little bit lighter. You feel like you put in the work and it’s paying dividends. For us, every week you come in and you want more. You want to keep stacking (wins) up and get better than you were.”
