Calvin Johnson is like most schoolyard bullies: You stand up to him and he just slinks away. Oh, wait, no, he's not like that at all. Unlike most schoolyard bullies, if you stand up to him he'll just beat you a little worse than he did the time before.
Just ask the Dallas Cowboys cornerbacks. After a relatively quite first half, Johnson has had a monster second half, including a go-head touchdown in the closing minutes of the Lions' come-from-behind win. Like his first touchdown, he basically manhandled his defender, this time fighting off a defensive holding penalty, to pull down the alley-oop pass from Matthew Stafford.
The second touchdown made him the first player in NFL history to open the season with at least two touchdowns in four consecutive games.
Last week, he had become the first player to catch at least two touchdowns in three consecutive games.
Update: To clarify, Johnson tied Cris Carter's record for two touchdowns in four straight games, but he's the first player to do so in the first four games of the season.
