The Lions struggled on offense in the first half against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football, and Calvin Johnson was a big part of that. The team's star wide receiver failed to catch a single pass.
Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was held without a catch in the first half of the team's game against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. Johnson also dropped a wide-open pass in the first quarter.
The Lions, who struggled as a whole offensively, went three-and-out on five of their first six possessions and turned the ball over on the seventh drive.
Fantasy Impact: Calvin Johnson's fantasy owners likely spent a first-round pick on the NFL's leading receiver in 2011. Coming into this game, Johnson had 558 yards but only one touchdown. Owners were also probably expecting more than one touchdown at this point.
Matthew Stafford and Johnson have been equally disappointing. The Lions' schedule hasn't been friendly, but the problems in the passing game are much deeper than poor matchups.
