With attention spans dwindling, we forego full game-by-game previews to give you the essentials you need to know about every contest this glorious NFL weekend. Click here to go back in time.

The 1s

Tampa Bay (7-3) at Detroit (0-10): For all the extremely negative things you could say about the Lions, one thing needs to be noted: Detroit has been competitive the last four weeks. Granted, they still are losing and could easily be the first winless team in a non strike-season since 1976, but it isn't like they're falling behind 21-0 in every game as they were earlier this year. That said, when people this week are e-mailing me with things like, "Hey buddy, was thinking about starting Jeff Garcia in fantasy over Ben Roethlisberger, Matt CasselandDonovan McNabb," you know things aren't perfect in Detroit.

Also, for Detroit fans, I'm a little disappointed the Super Bowl isn't in their town this year like 2006. What a football upper that would be, to have a team this bad around all season long, only to know that you at least have the Super Bowl in your digs to get you through the year.

Pick: Tampa Bay
