The Lions defensive line could be one of the best in the league with the likes of NFL defensive rookie of the year Ndamukong Suh and defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch along with Cliff Avril and Corey Williams. 

The Lions were also able to bolster their linebacking corps with Stephen Tulloch and Justin Durant. 

"Have we taken some big steps in personnel on this team? Yeah, we sure have. None of that means a thing if we don't do it on the field," Schwartz said. "... That's the only goal we have right now, is to go have a good week of preparation for Tampa Bay."

These two teams have split the series since 2005.  It is interesting to note that the Lions are 4-0 ATS when playing in Tampa Bay
