Video: Megatron Afraid Of Peppers?

(WSCR) “Megatron” may want to rethink his nickname.

When Charles Tillman intercepted Matthew Stafford’s third-quarter pass in Sunday’s win, it appears Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, also known as Megatron, had a chance to tackle Tillman before he scored. That is, until  he saw Julius Peppers coming to make a block.

In the video below, you can see as Johnson abruptly changes directions at the last second, giving up the tackle, to avoid getting laid out by a charging Peppers.

    That’s Stafford jumping out of the way, not Johnson. You can see it a little better in the first replay, where the camera is behind Stafford.
