With the regular season of the 2011 NFL season just days away, it seems time to indulge in a bit of educated guesswork.
First up for the Lions are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs were a surprise success story last year, but came up short against the Lions in Week 15 of last season. Detroit won in overtime 23-20. However, both sides look to be much stronger this time around, so there should be plenty of offensive and defensive fireworks.
In this article I am looking to predict the score, impact players and major talking points of the upcoming game. While I am sure I will not get everything right, I hope you enjoy the article!
