Lions vs. Buccaneers live score, updates, highlights from 2024 NFL playoff game

The Lions are on the prowl.

For the first time in millennia, it feels as if Detroit could host a title-contender. The Lions outlasted the Rams — and former marksman Matthew Stafford — in last week’s wild card round. Now, a date with the Buccaneers awaits them.

Tampa was dominant in its battering of the reigning Super Bowl runner-up Eagles last week. Detroit presents a different threat for the Bucs, though. Philadelphia had looked sluggish for much of the second-half of the season. The Lions, on the other hand, have long been tipped for excellence. And with scintillating displays by Amon-Ra St. Brown, Jared Goff, Aidan Hutchinson and others, a new era could be on the horizon in Motor City.

The Lions vanquished the Bucs’ when they faced off against each other back in Week 6. Still, last week’s showcase showed Tampa Bay has something about it. Whether that’s enough to challenge the might of Detroit Rock City is a different question.
