DETROIT -

Two Detroit Lions players came in first and second in a poll of NFL players conducted by ESPN that asked, "Who is the most feared player in the NFL?"

Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh came in first place, with 19 percent of the vote, and Lions star wide out Calvin Johnson came in second. Suh has previously come in first in surveys for the dirtiest player in the NFL.

“If it’s feared from the context of they don’t want to play against me and they are worried about how I may affect the game and affect the offense, it’s definitely appreciated,” Suh told ESPN.com. “It’s definitely seen as a plus and a positive. Guys have respect for you, just like guys have respect for Calvin. I’m surprised I edged him out but, hopefully, I don’t have to edge him out and we can just be co-winners. I prefer that.”

Among the top five: Peyton Manning, J.J. Watt and Patrick Willis.
