Calvin Johnson led the Detroit Lions to their fourth consecutive win Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, 34-30. The last game the Lions played at the Cowboys’ Arlington stadium was their NFL-record 26th straight road defeat. Coming back after a third quarter 24-point deficit, Detroit is turning heads with their outstanding play and undefeated 4-0 record.
The defense started the turnaround with two interceptions returned for touchdowns and a final interception with 4:13 remaining in the game.
Most of the attention is on Johnson, currently the NFL’s most productive receiver this season. The wide receiver scored two touchdowns in each of the Lions’ games this season and has stacked up a total of 321 yards on 24 receptions.
“The kid knows he’s the best receiver in the league,” Coach Jefferson told the Detroit Free Press. “He does. He knows it. But he’s just as humble as humble can get.”
Just last week the Lions returned from a 20-point halftime deficit to win against the Minnesota Vikings, 26-23. “We still have a lot of stuff to clean up,” Johnson said. “The way we’ve started the last two weeks, that’s really unacceptable.”
