Lions notes: More on Calvin Johnson's record

USA TODAY Sports

Lions notes looks at Calvin Johnson's record, Matthew Stafford's impending record and much more.

  • After Calvin Johnson broke the NFL single-season receiving record on Saturday, a video message was played at Ford Field from Jerry Rice. Herman Moore also congratulated Johnson when his Lions receiving record was broken.
  • There has been some talk that Johnson's record was fueled by meaningless yards in garbage time. Grantland has a great piece that shows that's not the case one bit.
  • The Lions snapped an amazing picture of Johnson and his father after Saturday's game.
  • This is a pretty crazy stat:
  • As is this:
  • Stafford is about to take down the NFL record for most pass attempts in a single season. He only needs to throw 7 more passes to pass Drew Bledsoe.
  • Jason Hanson's record for the most field goals of 50 or more yards in a single season was broken by Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh on Sunday.
  • Mikel Leshoure's 9 rushing touchdowns this season are the most for a Lions player since James Stewart's 10 in 2000, according to Tim Twentyman.
  • Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte is going to try to play this week against the Lions despite being in a walking boot on Sunday. Also, Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher may return on Sunday.
  • Lomas Brown recently admitted that he allowed Scott Mitchell to get hurt during a game in 1994. Maybe this happens more often than I think, but my opinion of Brown has gone down because of this story.
