It's on to the NFC Divisional Round for these Detroit Lions.

Sunday afternoon, the Lions face off against an opponent they have already played once this season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

In the teams' first meeting back in October, the Lions won by a score of 20-6. Clearly, Detroit figured something out on how to stop a resurging Baker Mayfield.

Detroit held the Bucs to their lowest scoring output of the season but, based on how Tampa looked against Philadelphia last weekend, the Lions could be in for a much different Bucs team. The winner of this matchup will be one step away from the Super Bowl, earning a spot in the NFC Championship Game.
