It's become another lost season for the Detroit Lions franchise as they prepare for a Week 16 home game with very little on the line. Their opponents, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, have much more to play for, as playoff seeding is still on the line.

This Saturday afternoon game has the road Buccaneers as massive favorites, as we take a look at the experts picks and predictions for TB-Detroit.
