Tampa Bay Buccaneers 38  Detroit Lions 21 Sunday 15 December 2019       at  Ford Field
Jameis Winston became the first quarterback in NFL history to post consecutive 450-yard passing games as the Bucs won their fourth straight and evened their record at 7-7.  It came at a prize as the week after Mike Evans was lost with a hamstring injury, the Bucs’ other 1,000-yard receiver Chris Godwin also got hurt.  Breshad Perriman stepped in with a career game including three touchdowns in the city where his father Bret played in the 1990s.
