Speaking of Lions, Calvin Johnson had a remarkable season.

12 receptions for 211 yards and 2 TDs in the playoff loss tonight.

96 receptions for 1,681 yards and 16 TDs during the regular season.

CJ's 1,681 receiving yards is the 7th highest single season total of all-time.

A little nugget of info - those 1,681 yards are the 7th most all-time, but still doesn't set the Lions single season mark. Former Lions WR Herman Moore is 6th all-time with 1,686 yards in 1995.

Even more interesting....1995 is the owner of 3 of the highest 6 single season all-time WR yardage marks:

1: Jerry Rice 1,848 yards in 1995
2: Isaac Bruce 1,781 yards in 1995
3: Charley Hennigan, 1,746 yards in 1961
4: Marvin Harrison, 1,722 yards in 2002
5: Torry Holt, 1,696 yards in 2003
6: Herman Moore, 1,686 yards in 1995
