Calvin Johnson’s return benefits Matthew Stafford more than anyone

ALLEN PARK, Mich. — The Detroit Lions never want to be without Calvin Johnson. Not for a play, a quarter, a game or, as they were during the first half of the 2014 season, three straight weeks.

There is an interesting byproduct here, though, especially considering quarterback Matthew Stafford was still working out the final pieces of Joe Lombardi’s offense as he also had to play for the first time in his career without his top target for a good chunk of time.
