Megatron Breaks Jerry Rice Receiving Record: Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson surpassed Jerry Rice's single-season yards receiving record of 1,848 yards Saturday, catching 11 receptions for 225 yards against the Atlanta Falcons. The receiver nicknamed Megatron now has 1,892 yards and one more game to build on his record. Rice set the mark in 1995 with the San Francisco 49ers. "How amazing was it?" writes Mitch Albom. "You almost forgot that the Lions lost their seventh game in a row, 31-18, and are now an awful 4-11."
