Calvin Johnson celebrates his touchdown with tight end Joseph Fauria

MegaPrime (my new nickname for Calvin Johnson) is ridiculously good. He deserves any accolades coming his way. I mean 14 receptions, 329 yards. WOW!!

However, there should be major concern in Detroit. Even with Johnson’s monstrous day, they should have lost. If Dallas had any common sense, the Lions would be a game and a half behind the Packers in the division race.

A bye week will be needed to cure their defensive woes before a visit to Soldier Field.
