Despite the loss, the Lions leads the all-time series 31-29. The Buccaneers have won the last two games in the series in the past two seasons.
Detroit has not won in the series since a 24-21 over Tampa Bay on December 10, 2017.
With the win, the Buccaneers improved to 10-5 on the season. The Lions fell to 5-10.
The Lions were down from the get-go as the team was without much of their coaching staff, due to COVID-19 contact tracing. Had the game between played on Sunday and not Saturday, the coaches would have been available.
However, the league insisted on the game being played on Saturday.
For the first time since the 2007 season, the Buccaneers have advanced to the postseason. Their future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady has made the playoffs each season of his career.
Brady went 22 of 27 for 348 yards. He had four touchdown passes.
Blaine Gabbert went 9 of 15 for 143 yards. He also had two touchdown passes.
Ke’Shawn Vaughn had 15 carries for 62 yards. Mike Evans had 10 receptions for 181 yards and two touchdowns.
Lions quarterback Chase Daniel went 13 of 18 for 86 yards.
Daniel replaced Matthew Stafford, who got injured early in the game and did not return. Before departing the contest, Stafford went 2 of 3 for 17 yards.
D’Andre Swift had 10 carries for 45 yards. Danny Amendola had five receptions for 37 yards.
Leonard Fournette had a rushing touchdown for the Buccaneers. Evans had the aforementioned two touchdown receptions.
Chris Godwin, Rob Gronkowski, and Antonio Brown combined for four additional touchdowns.
The Lions lone points came from a 74-yard punt return for a touchdown by Jamal Agnew in the third quarter.
