Up front, Lions look vulnerable

FOXBORO — The Detroit Lions passing game justifiably strikes fear into opposing defenses, but it’s not without flaws.For as dangerous as receivers Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate are, they aren’t too useful if quarterback Matthew Stafford is getting pounded into the turf.This season, that hasn’t been a rarity. In fact, it’s quite common.

Darrelle Revis set for 3rd Megatron meeting

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis has faced Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson twice before, and on Wednesday, he called him a “man among boys.” Revis added that Johnson is like a video-game creation with his size (6-foot-5, 236 pounds) and speed (4.3 in the 40-yard dash). A possible Revis vs. Johnson matchup is a significant part of what makes Sunday’s Patriots-Lions game compelling, and if one looks at their prior two meetings, it could be viewed as a draw.

Belichick talks up Lions WRs Johnson, Tate

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- At 6-foot-5 and 236 pounds and as one of the most dominant pass-catchers the NFL has ever seen, there's a reason Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is nicknamed Megatron. As the New England Patriots prepare for a matchup with a healthy Johnson this Sunday, head coach Bill Belichick called what Johnson has accomplished thus far in his career "historical." "Obviously a great downfield receiver, a big target on the outside routes, hard guy to tackle on the first level," Belichick said during his news conference on Wednesday morning.

Lions injury report: Reggie Bush remains out

It might be time for the Detroit Lions to shut down running back Reggie Bush until he's 100 percent healthy. As expected, the Detroit Lions got wide receiver Calvin Johnson back at practice on Thursday. He was just given a day off on Wednesday, meaning he should be able to play without any limitations on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. One of the other players who missed practice on Wednesday, Reggie Bush, was out again on Thursday. Although Tim Twentyman reported that Bush "was working pretty hard with trainers on the side," the Lions are considering shutting him down until he's 100...
