Calvin Johnson, the Madden NFL 13 cover star, must not understand what it means to be cursed. The Detroit Lions wideout just broke the record for most receiving yards in a single season during the fourth quarter of a nationally-televised game against the Atlanta Falcons. He also may have made the Madden Curse his bitch in the process.
Down 28-16 in the fourth quarter, the Lions were sure to get the man they call Megatron involved. Lions QB Matthew Stafford decided to make things interesting by throwing into Johnson’s vicinity and tossing an awful interception. Way to go, person most responsible for the Lions’ awful record. The Falcons definitely didn’t know you were going to throw to him with just four yards between Megatron and the single-season receiving record.
