Mikel LeShoure and Calvin Johnson made the Jaguars’ defensive resurgence a short lived dream. Johnson returned to Megatron form with a dominant seven catch, 129 yard game. While he didn’t record a touchdown (Those almost all went to LeShoure) Johnson was able to show that despite playing hurt and resting all week he can turn it on whenever he wants and continue to be the dominant player he is.
LeShoure came into the Jags game with a bit more of a chip on his shoulder than super star Johnson. LeShoure had only 305 yards coming into Sunday’s game. His one touchdown on the season was tripled against the Jaguars as he found the endzone three times. LeShoure wasn’t even a receiving threat and was still able to put up 70 yards and threaten the defense whenever he was on the field.
Whether you love watching the other team trounce your beloved favorite team or you just like watching super good play out of strong players LeShoure and Johnson delivered. For those with either man on your fantasy team, congrats. For those of us who watched them play how they wanted with very little resistance from the Jaguars Defense, I’m very sorry.
It’s a rough time for Jaguars fans, but it’s tough to deny that both players found ways to capitalize against a defense that had some momentum coming into the game.
