Lions notes: Calvin Johnson sets more records in loss to Cardinals

USA TODAY Sports

Lions notes looks at the latest records to fall at the hands of Calvin Johnson, some other stats from Sunday and more.

  • Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson had 10 catches for 121 yards on Sunday. He now has 106 catches in 2012, which is a new career high. (His old career high was 96.) He is the first Lions player to have more than 100 catches in a season since Herman Moore in 1997. (Via Dave Birkett)
  • Johnson is closing in on a new career high for yards receiving. He now has 1,667 on the season, which is just 14 yards shy of what he had in 2011.
  • On Sunday, Johnson became the first player in NFL history to record 1,600 yards receiving in back-to-back seasons.
  • Johnson also tied an NFL record by recording his seventh consecutive game with 100 or more yards receiving.
  • The Lions have now won the coin toss 10 times this season. Sunday was the first time they deferred instead of taking the ball. (Via Justin Rogers)
  • Mikel Leshoure has 8 rushing touchdowns this season. As a team, the Lions have 16 rushing touchdowns, which is their most since 1997, according to Chris McCosky.
  • A big reason why the Lions have lost so many games this season has to do with the offense and special teams allowing touchdowns.
  • On Sunday, Jason Hanson tied Morten Andersen for the most field goals of at least 40 yards in NFL history (187). (Via the Lions' Twitter account)
