Sports Illustrated has featured Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Calvin Johnson on one of two covers released for this week's edition of the magazine, as Brad Galli of ABC 7 in Detroit reports. Two covers were released for the issue, which previews the 2012 NFL season in great detail.â†µ
