Calvin Johnson and Andrew Luck Add Onto Their Single Season Records

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Detroit LionsAfter breaking Jerry Rice’s 17-year-old single season receiving record in Week 16, Detroit’s Calvin Johnson was 108 yards away from accomplishing what no other wide-receiver had ever done — record 2,000 receiving yards in a single season. Unfortunately, Johnson finished 36 yards short, but he was able to add onto his single-season receiving record.

Johnson started off the game slow with only two catches for 23 yards in the first half. But things picked up during a Lions drive in the middle of the third when he recorded two catches for 18 and 24 yards. Johnson had one more reception late in the third to bring his total for 72 on the day and 1,964 on the year.

There was one play with about four minutes left to play in the fourth where quarterback Matt Stafford targeted Johnson on a third down. Johnson had cornerback Charles Tillman trailing him as he ran an out. The ball was thrown behind Johnson and it fell incomplete. Johnson had a lot of space in front of him that could have potentially gotten him over the 2,000 yard mark. And if not, it would have kept the drive alive and given him more opportunities to add onto his total.

Instead, the Bears picked up a couple of first downs and were able to run the clock down since the Lions had no timeouts left.

In another early game, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was able to add onto his single-season rookie passing record. Last week, Luck broke Cam Newton’s rookie passing record (set the week before) and this week Luck added another 191 yards to finish the year at 4,183.

Luck is one of the top contenders for the Rookie of the Year award considering the great season he’s had — but he won’t be a shoe in with both Robert Griffin and Russell Wilson also having fantastic years. The Colts are heading into the post season as the fifth seed in this year’s playoffs.
