Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are holding on to the sixth and final playoff spot. They are now tied with the Los Angeles Rams at 9-5 but the Arizona Cardinals are just a game behind and could steal the playoff position if they are not careful. Tom Brady is expected to be at his best and showed that he is still one of the best in the business by leading the team over the Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta Falcons. He posted 390 yards, two touchdown passes and 69% completion against the Falcons. This team will have to win this game and secure the playoff spot by ending the season strong when they battle the Atlanta Falcons again to end the season.

Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions are just trying to get some positives before ending the season. This team is out of playoff contention and coming in their NFL Week 16 matchup losing four of their last five matches. This team’s only win in that stretch was against the Chicago Bears but went back-to-back losses after that. They now sit at the 10th-best record in the National Football Conference at a record of 5-9. The Lions are on a four-way tie with the San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants. After this game, they will end their season by battling the Minnesota Vikings.
