Tonight's game

September 28, 1998

Time: 8: 20, chs. 2, 7.

Line: Bucs by 2.

Vs. spread: Bucs 1-2; Lions 0-3.

Outlook: Nobody left the Bucs for dead when they started the season 0-2, but it certainly didn't help their chances to chase down the Packers for the division title. Now that the offense is finally rolling, the Bucs have a chance to get back into the NFC Central race. After the Lions, they have winnable games against zTC the Giants, Panthers and Saints before facing the Vikings again.

Notable: This is Tampa Bay's first Monday night game since 1983.


BUCS: Doubtful: WR Bert Emanuel (ankle). Questionable: WR Jacquez Green (thumb). Probable: G Frank Middleton (ankle); CB Anthony Parker (back).

LIONS: Out: DT Travis Kirschke (abdomen-injured reserve); RB Tommy Vardell (knee). Doubtful: RB Cory Schlesinger (ankle).
