GLENDALE, Ariz. -- It was only a matter of time before Detroit Lions receiver
After a fairly quiet Week 1 performance that saw the game's best receiver catch just four passes for 37 yards, Johnson already has four receptions for 96 yards and two touchdowns in the first half here in Arizona.
Both of Johnson's first-half touchdowns came from the slot.
On the 72-yard score, Johnson got inside leverage on Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson and Lions quarterback
Johnson was also in the slot on his second touchdown catch, a 3-yard catch late in the second quarter. This time, the Lions ran the pick play to perfection with the outside receiver on Johnson's side to free him up on an outside release. He beat Peterson on the second touchdown as well.
It just goes to show how moving Johnson around to constantly force the Cardinals to change their coverages is working early on for the Lions.
