Fan voting for the 2013 Pro Bowl ended on Monday and no Detroit Lions finished as the leader at their position in the NFC. Wide receiver Calvin Johnson finished second among NFC receivers behind Victor Cruz of the New York Giants.
Johnson finished with 499,067 votes and Cruz finished with 515,811. Johnson leads the NFL in receiving yards with 1,667 and ranks second with 106 receptions; he also has five touchdowns on the season. Johnson needs only 181 yards over the final two games of the season to surpass Jerry Rice for the most receiving yards in a single season. Cruz has 79 receptions for 1,019 yards and nine touchdowns.
Johnson has been selected to the Pro Bowl in each of the last two seasons.

The Pro Bowl rosters will be announced on Dec. 26 on the NFL Network at 6 p.m. CT. The Pro Bowl will be played on Jan. 27 in Honolulu at 6 p.m. CT on NBC.
