In the opening round of the playoffs, LaPorta proved to be as reliable as ever after reeling in a touchdown grab. He didn’t rack up many yards or targets in that game, but the Los Angeles Rams did a great job bottling him up. The good news for the Lions‘ though is that the Buccaneers have one of the worst passing defenses in the league.

Tampa Bay finished the regular season 29th in pass defense. They allowed an average of 248.9 yards per game. Additionally, the Bucs allowed opposing offenses to score 23 touchdowns on them through the air. So, Sam LaPorta and the Lions offense might be in for a big day.
