Lions | Calvin Johnson to face Patrick Peterson
Fri, 13 Sep 2013 09:58:37 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson will be covered by Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson in Week 2. Johnson had 10 grabs for 121 yards but didn't find the end zone last season against Peterson and the Cardinals. Peterson said he is just focused on limited Johnson from big plays. Johnson had only four catches for 37 yards in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings. Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles said Peterson won't be left one-on-one all day against Johnson.
Peterson is one of the better cover corners in the NFL, but the matchup against Megatron shouldn't scare you away from starting Johnson. If last year was any indication, Johnson could easily triumph in the matchup.
