Megatron, shmegatron: Titus Young steals the show Sunday
After a week in which the focus was on everything from Calvin Johnson's size at 6 feet 5 to his Transformers nickname, the Lions leading receiver caught as many passes (three) as he allowed to bounce off his hands.
"You see his numbers," cornerback Richard Sherman said. "They speak for themselves. He was a non-factor." Instead it was Titus Young, the Lions' second-year receiver from Boise State, who caught nine passes, including two touchdowns. His 46-yard touchdown in the second quarter matched the longest scoring pass allowed by Seattle this season, and his 1-yard catch in the fourth quarter turned out to be the game-winner.
As for all the attention on Johnson before the game?
"We can't emphasize on one guy so much," Seahawks corner Brandon Browner said. "I thought we'd match up well against him."
