VIDEO: Calvin Johnson Scores 57-Yard Touchdown, Drops Ball On Dunk Attempt

The Detroit Lions finally found the end zone on Sunday in the third quarter of their game against the Atlanta Falcons. After struggling to do much offensively throughout the game, the Lions broke out with their usual Matthew Stafford to Calvin Johnson combination. Stafford faked a handoff and an end-around before finding an open Johnson, who broke a tackle and was able to jog into the end zone for a 57-yard touchdown. (Video of the play is after the jump.)

Although Johnson did complete the process on the catch, he didn't on the celebration. Megatron tried to dunk the ball over the crossbar, but he dropped it on the way up.


Hopefully Johnson will get another chance to celebrate, as the Lions are currently down by a score of 20-16.
