DETROIT LIONS The all-time series with the Lions currently sees Detroit four ahead thanks to their win at Ford Field in December 2014.   The Lions are the team that the Buccaneers have played the most in their franchise history thanks to their twice-a-year meetings when they were both in the old NFC Central Division.  They have met once in the post-season, the 1997 Wild Card victory for Tampa Bay that was the final game played at the Old Sombrero.  They have never met in pre-season play.
