The Detroit Lions do have a decent excuse if they don't want to talk about last weekend's head-scratching loss to Tampa Bay.
They don't have much time to waste before a Thanksgiving showdown with division rival Green Bay.
The Lions lost 24-21 to the Buccaneers on Sunday, turning the ball over five times in perhaps their worst defeat of the season. Detroit has lost two in a row since taking over sole possession of first place in the NFC North. The Lions are now tied atop the division with Chicago heading into Thursday's matchup with the Packers.
