Lions Lowdown: Odds stacked against Detroit

Detroit News
Lions' Matthew Stafford is helped by his offensive linemen after being sacked by the Ravens' Terrell Suggs in the second  quarter on Sunday in Baltimore.

Bob Wojnowski of The Detroit News picks the Buccaneers to beat the Lions 27-21 in this week's edition of Lions Lowdown.

A loss would just about eliminate the Lions from the playoffs.

Detroit is 6-6 and two games behind in the NFC wild-card race heading into Sunday's game in Tampa.

The odds of the Lions making the playoffs right now are just 9.9 percent, according to Football Outsiders.
