Charles Tillman and Bears’ D shut down Calvin Johnson and Detroit

Lions receiver Calvin Johnson entered Monday night’s game in Chicago averaging 112 receiving yards a game. Then he went up against Bears cornerback Charles Tillman.

The result was a bad game for Johnson, who caught just three of the 11 passes thrown to him, for 34 yards, and a bad game for the Lions’ offense. The Bears shut Detroit down until the Lions finally got into the end zone with 30 seconds left in the fourth quarter, and when the Bears recovered the ensuing onside kick they had earned a hard-fought 13-7 victory.
