At least the Lions have one good player.
Lions receiver Calvin Johnson went over 100 yards in the first half of Saturday night’s game against the Falcons, making it the eighth straight game that Johnson topped 100 receiving yards. That’s a new NFL record.
It’s also Johnson’s 11th 100-yard game this season, which ties an NFL record owned by Hall of Famer Michael Irvin. Johnson will have a chance to break that record next week.
Unfortunately, Johnson and kicker Jason Hanson are the only Lions players playing well tonight. The Falcons lead 21-6, and the Lions were booed off Ford Field as they headed to the locker room at halftime.
