Let's hope this doesn't jinx them, but the Detroit Lions are featured on this week's cover of Sports Illustrated. Specifically, a picture of Calvin Johnson's touchdown catch over Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman is featured on the cover. Check it out:â†µ
The last time the Lions were on the cover was when Barry Sanders was featured on the 2004 Hall of Fame edition of Sports Illustrated. The last time a current player was on the cover was in 2002 when Joey Harrington appeared with a quote that said he knows he can play in this league. Whoops.
