Calvin Johnson’s Greatest Plays Against (Almost) Every NFL Team

Calvin Johnson’s Greatest Plays Against (Almost) Every NFL Team
  • Jake O'Donnell

After nine seasons terrorizing opposing cornerbacks with his unprecedented combination of size and speed, Calvin Johnson has informed the Detroit Lions that he will not be returning to football next season. [Frowny face.]

At just 30 years of age, Johnson will finish his career with 27th-most total receiving yards in NFL history (11,619), the single-season record for receiving yards (1,964 in 2012) and the second-most receiving yards in a game (329 against the Cowboys in 2013). Megatron truly is without peer, having accomplished so much in vastly less time than the other great pass catchers he’ll inevitably join in Canton when he becomes eligible for enshrinement five years from now.

Chances are he’s burned your team at one point in the last nine years (someone one particular franchise has managed to contain him), so we’ve collected Calvin Johnson’s best highlights against each of NFL teams since coming in the league in 2007.
