Brandon Marshall and Calvin Johnson both had huge games and are both on pace for monster, possibly record breaking seasons.

Brandon Marshall had 10 receptions for 165 yards on Sunday. That gives him 91 receptions for 1,182 yards and 8 TDs. That puts him on pace for 121 receptions for 1,576 yards and 11 TDs.

The single season record for receptions in a season is 143 receptions by Marvin Harrison in 2002, so B-Marsh will probably come up short of that record, as he'd need to average 13.25 receptions a game for the next 4 games to break Marvin Harrison's record.

Calvin Johnson had 13 receptions for 171 yards and a TD on Sunday. That gives him 86 receptions for 1,428 yards and 5 TDs. That puts him on pace for 115 receptions for 1,904 yards and 7 TDs.

The NFL single season receiving yards record is 1,848 yards set by Jerry Rice in 1995....so CJ has a legit shot at breaking that record.

With Detroit's season in the ****ter, I'm sure they'll make an effort to get him the record.
