  Lions snap 11-game losing streak by booting Cardinals on last-second field goal Prior to Sunday, the Detroit Lions had an 11-game losing streak that dated back to last season before they beat the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.The Lions beat the Cardinals 26-23 on Sunday on Matt Prater's 39-yard field goal, ending a nearly year-long skid and giving the franchise a bit of life after starting the season 0-2.

Damon Harrison spent the offseason waiting for an opportunity to continue his career, and the Seahawks provided one by opening up a practice squad slot for him. That could turn into a promotion to Seattle’s active roster soon, but another team inquired about a 53-man spot this week.

The Buccaneers contacted Harrison about poaching him from the Seahawks’ practice squad this week, Mike Garafolo and Tom Pelissero of NFL.com report. However, Harrison declined the opportunity and will remain with the Seahawks.

Vikings' Harrison Smith ejected for targeting call on Texas' Jordan Akins

Akins held onto the ball for a 26-yard completion, but he left the game after the play and was subsequently ruled out for the remainder of the contest with a concussion.

Tampa Bay lost emerging standout Vita Vea during its Week 5 loss to Chicago on Thursday, but the Bucs might have to look in-house to replace their starting nose tackle. Were the Bucs to have officially offered a 53-man roster spot to Harrison, the Seahawks would have needed to promote him to their active roster to prevent such a move. The team has yet to do so but still has time to promote its recent acquisition ahead of its Sunday night game against the Vikings.

Snacks, 31, has operated as a nose tackle starter since his second season (2013). He has played that role for the Jets, Giants and Lions. The veteran will almost certainly be called upon to suit up for the Seahawks soon.

Is the fire sale starting? Just hours after their latest loss the Jets have agreed to trade defensive tackle Steve McLendon to the Buccaneers.The Buccaneers will send a sixth-round pick in 2022 and get back a seventh-round pick in 2023, Stroud tweets. Tampa Bay was in need of a nose tackle run-stuffer after the season-ending injury to Vita Vea, so they went out and made a quick move. McLendon will be reuniting with Bucs defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who was his head coach with the Jets, which helps explain this acquisition.
