Megatron feasts on Bears defense in Thanksgiving showdown
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was the star of Thursday's game against the Bears, totaling 11 catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-17 win Week 13. He was targeted 16 times.

It was the 42nd time Johnson surpassed 100 yards in his career, which ties him with Cris Carter for 15th all-time. Johnson now has 11 career games with at least 10 receptions.

Also, late in the first half Thursday, Johnson became the fastest to reach 10,000 receiving yards in NFL history. It took Johnson just 115 games to accomplish the feat, besting Torry Holt, who reached 10,000 receiving yards in 116 games.

Johnson has surpassed 100 yards three times this season and twice in his last four games. He had his first multitouchdown game Thursday since Week 1 against the Giants. He's managed at least two receiving touchdowns 15 times in his career.

The Lions are back in action Week 14 against Tampa Bay.

The Lions released their Week 13 injury report Wednesday, and announced they will play Thursday against the Bears without defensive tackle Nick Fairley (knee) and guard Larry Warford.

Running back Reggie Bush (ankle, back) is listed as questionable for a third straight week. However, he told reporters he expects to play, according to MLive.com. Bush also said the same thing leading up to Week 12 before sitting out.

Tackle Riley Reiff (knee) is also listed as questionable, while Ezekiel Ansah (elbow), safety James Ihedigbo (knee), wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle), defensive end George Johnson (foot), cornerback Rashean Mathis (ankle) and safety Glover Quin (back) are all listed as probable.

Megatron contends he's still the 'same guy' from record-breaking year
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

It's quite evident Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson's production in 2014 has not been up to par. Johnson has missed time this season due to an ankle injury, but when he has been active, he has averaged just 72.3 receiving yards per game, which is his lowest average since 2010. He had averaged more than 100 receiving yards per game from 2011-13.

Johnson said Tuesday he is still the "same guy" from 2012, when he totaled 1,964 receiving yards, which is an NFL record. Quarterback Matthew Stafford suggests Johnson's drop in production is because defenses are doing a better job "keying in" on the star receiver.

"He’s the best receiver in the league, and they know that," Stafford said, per The Detroit News. "It’s on me to just throw him better balls and make sure we’re on the same page."

Stafford added it's tough to tell if Johnson is still hobbled by the ankle injury.

"It was a long time that he was out," Stafford said. "Even when he was in early on in the season, there were a couple games he played where he wasn’t himself. It’s always a long process coming back."
