VIDEO: Nate Burleson Touchdown Upheld, No 'Calvin Johnson Rule'

There may or not be an actual "Calvin Johnson Rule", but Nate Burleson at least won't have to worry about it. The Detroit Lions wide receiver made a nice catch in the back of the endzone that referees originally ruled incomplete because the ball came out when he tried to regain his balance. Thing was, Burleson had already made about 15 steps (yes, I'm exaggerating) before dropping the ball. It would have been a rather new low if replays had not given Burleson the score.
