Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson finished last Monday night's game with six catches for 98 yards. It's a testament to his production and the resulting expectations that it was considered a down game for Megatron. Johnson did have two key inexcusable drops and another that was difficult on a two-point conversion. However, aside from the drops, Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith did an above-average job in covering the star wideout. It was only the fourth time all season Johnson had been held either under 100 yards or without a TD. And, as the Ravens website pointed out, the majority of Johnson's catches were made when the Ravens were in zone coverage. What does this mean for New England Patriots QB Tom Brady and his WRs this week?
