01:38 PM ET 12.17 | Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson has set another milestone. Johnson on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals has 10 catches for 121 yards to become the first receiver in NFL history to have consecutive seasons with at least 1,600 yards. Marvin Harrison and Torry Holt are the only other receivers to have two 1,600-yard seasons in their careers. Johnson said after the game (via The Detroit News) that he considered the mark an accomplishment but said the team's record this year "overshadows a lot of things." Johnson remains on pace to break Jerry Rice 's NFL single-season mark of 1,848 yards.

I don't know about 11 wins. Lots of teams mailed it in this past weekend (Chargers, Giants, Bucs) and I think the Lions are in that group. Just about the only way they could allow 38 points to one of the worst offenses in the NFL is if they quit. Pretty sad performance.

I think Detroit and Andy Reid would be a great fit next season.

Congrats Megatron, good athlete, not so good team, lousy Coach.

Yeah. I'd like to see him go somewhere that already has a pro bowl calibre quarterback.

He's spent too much time trying to force scrambling QBs to play like a pocket passer... I'd like to see him finally work with a true pocket passer.

Rices record will fall soon, but I'd still prefer @ least 1 SB ring.
