The Detroit Lions struggle when they don’t have Calvin Johnson on the field, and even last week when he returned from injury, he was not the Megatron fans expect. According to Stripe Hype on Oct. 18, the Lions expect Johnson to be more like his old self as they take on the Cincinnati Bengals this week. Here is how you can follow the Bengals vs. Lions live stream and TV coverage for the big game.

Getting Calvin Johnson back to full strength will help since no other Lions’ receiver has stepped up yet to claim a star role in this offense. Johnson’s return should also help the running game and Reggie Bush, who has been a big addition to the Lions team. Honestly, Bush is why the Lions have rebounded so well this season.
Andy Dalton and A.J. Green remain the Bengals star tandem, although they are still trying to find their mojo in the running game. Both BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Gio Bernard are playing in a committee backfield, and there is no telling which one will step up each week. Until they get that settled, they will need their defense to continue playing strong if they want to keep winning game.
The Bengals vs. Lions live stream and tv coverage starts at 1 p.m. EST.
