VIDEO: Calvin Johnson's Team-Record 16th Touchdown Vs. Packers

Calvin Johnson was already having an amazing season for the Lions, but now it's officially a Lions record season.

In the second quarter of the Lions-Packers Week 17 game, Calvin Johnson caught a 13 yard touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford for his 16th of the season to put the Lions up 16-10. Johnson's touchdown reception means he joins Barry Sanders and Billy Sims as the only Lions to score 16 touchdowns in a single season.

We have video after the jump:

Megatron is leading the Lions in the game with three receptions, 50 yards, and the touchdown seen above. There's still over two and a half quarters left for Megatron to shatter the record completely. Johnson tied Cris Carter's NFL record earlier this season with two TD receptions in each of the first four games.
