Points will be at a premium when Lions visit Bills

The Detroit Lions are technically alive in the NFC playoff hunt, although they would have to vault seven other teams over the final three weeks of the season.

Giving those improbable circumstances, the Lions are more focused on how to boost production from an injury-depleted offense when they visit another struggling team in the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon.

Detroit leaned on its defense to halt a two-game slide with a 17-3 road win at Arizona last weekend, marking the fifth time in the past seven games the team has failed to score more than 17 points. Still, first-year head coach Matt Patricia pointed to the end result rather than how it was achieved.
