The Detroit Lions are looking to end the Tampa Bay Buccaneers two-game win streak. The Lions need a win to stay atop the NFC North division. Currently they’re tied for first in the division with the Chicago Bears who take on the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. The Lions could be getting wide receiver Nate Burleson back from an injury.
“I hope so,” Burleson said, via MLive.com. “I don’t want to give away too much, but things are looking up for Nate Burleson. Catching some balls, getting high-fives, my friends are talking to me again. Things are finally looking up. That pizza set me back, man.”
“That’s big,” offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. “When he went out, he was our leading receiver (with 19 catches). He was having one of his better years. So having him back in there, with the reliability factor and the confidence of the quarterback, that’s big.”
