Johnson breaks all-time NFL record
- From the section American football
Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson sets the record for the most receiving yards in an NFL season, breaking Jerry Rice's all-time mark set back in 1995.
The 27-year-old - nicknamed Megatron - now has 1,892 yards for the season, 44 yards ahead of Rice's previous record, with one more game to go.
The record could not prevent the Lions falling to a 31-18 defeat at home to the Atlanta Falcons who move to 13-2 for the season, guaranteeing top seeding for the play-offs.
