Preseason (Week 2): Detroit Lions 27, Cincinnati Bengals 10
The basics of the Lions' win over the Bengals are: Chad Johnson hurts his shoulder, but his coach says he will be ready for opener; Jon Kitna is perfect -- when it comes to pass rating for the game; one Johnson (Rudi) didn't play and another Johnson (Calvin) was impressive.
