Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson has been held out of the season finale.
Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is active against the New York Giants. He was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game because of an injured right knee.
After missing time in his first two seasons, Amukamara has stayed healthy and is playing like a top cornerback.
Jim Schwartz started the season on the hot seat and it might be scalding after another collapse. Losing four of five has likely hurt his job security.
The Lions have taken more undisciplined penalties than any other team in football throughout Schwartz’s tenure. Whether it’s a motion or offside penalty before the snap or an unnecessary roughness or a late hit call after the play, Schwartz’s team never seems to learn.
For the third straight week, the Giants are playing an opponent who faces a must-win situation to either remain in playoff contention or while attempting to enhance its postseason seeding.
The New York Football Giants increased an already lengthy injury list by adding star receiver Victor Cruz to the walking wounded this week. The Detroit Lions are crossing their fingers that All Pro receiver Calvin Johnson and leading tackler DeAndre Levy can suit up against New York.
The Lions might present the former Nebraska star and the Giants’ secondary their biggest challenge. They have to find a way to slow down the player known as “Megatron.”
Fresh off their latest debacle, a 23-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks at the Meadowlands, the New York Giants travel to Detroit for a matchup with playoff desperate Lions. Detroit is fighting it out with the Chicago Bears to secure first place in the competitive NFC north division, so the Lions cannot afford to take a win over the deflated Giants for granted.
The Detroit Lions scored 37 straight points to beat the Green Bay Packers 40-10 on Thanksgiving Day.
Calvin Johnson and his stat lines have locked down best receiver with a level of dominance perhaps never before seen at that position. With Megatron sitting atop the podium, who currently owns the title of second most dangerous receiver in the NFL: Dez Bryant or A.J. Green?
For all of Calvin Johnson’s 329 yards, the Detroit Lions needed another foot or so. Matthew Stafford provided it, capping a stunning comeback win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Every year around this time, I find myself getting asked the same question over and over again from people who know I enjoy football. “So, who do you like this season?”
Here’s what you need to know about the wide receiver position this year: It’s deep. Here’s our top 12.
Fans should enjoy at least a brief glimpse of a pulsating one-on-one matchup between Johnson and defensive back Antonio Cromartie.
