Calvin Johnson Blog: "We've got to be mentally tight, but physically loose"

Wide receiver Calvin Johnson talks about the race in the NFC North and what the Lions have to do to get a win at Chicago

I don't even try to think about the division race too much, I just try to focus on what we've got at hand. I have to say, though, it's hard not to notice. We've played everybody so far and we're in a three-way tie, I guess.

Knowing that we could really make something happen with a win this Sunday -- take the lead in the division -- is great, especially at this point in the season with two division games left.

Our fate is in our hands and we can handle that by coming out every day -- whether it be practice or a walkthrough -- and being on the details. That way when we get in the game and situations arise, we're ready for them.

We've got to be mentally tight, but physically loose, which means knowing what we've got to do so that we can just go out there and play. We can rely on our fundamentals and the things that we talked about all week.
