Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson has had a record-breaking night.
Johnson surpassed Jerry Rice’s single-season yards receiving record of 1,848 with his 10th catch in the fourth quarter Saturday night. That put Johnson over the 200-yard mark in the game against the Atlanta Falcons. He needed 182 to surpass the mark Rice set in 1995 with the San Francisco 49ers.
Johnson had more than 100 yards receiving for an eighth straight game, breaking an NFL record set by Charley Hennigan in 1961 and matched by Michael Irvin in 1995. Johnson broke another league mark with 10 receptions in a fourth game in a row.
It was Johnson’s 11th game with 100 yards receiving this season, tying Irvin’s NFL mark.
In the first quarter, Johnson surpassed Herman Moore’s single-season franchise record of 1,686 yards. (ESPN)
