Calvin Johnson had a monster season for the Detroit Lions. Forget monster, it was a record-breaking display. Johnson broke something else this season, besides the NFL receiving record -- he broke multiple fingers and still played.
Calvin Johnson did the impossible last season, racking up 1,681 yards, 16 touchdowns and the first playoff appearance for the Detroit Lions since leather helmets went out of style. His reward for those accomplishments is the devilish curse brought on by the Madden NFL cover. Ask Peyton Hillis how last year’s cover appearance worked out for him.
