Calvin Johnson scored a 57-yard touchdown to start a Lions comeback against the Falcons.

Just when you think the Detroit Lions were done for the day, leave it to quarterback Matt Stafford and all-world wide receiver Calvin Johnson to shatter that notion. With the Atlanta Falcons leading by a score of 20-9 in the third quarter, Stafford hit Johnson for a 57-yard touchdown to close the gap and make it a game. Here's a video of Megatron's touchdown. 

That was Stafford's 11th completion on 20 attempts. The Lions quarterback has 142 passing yards. Johnson has four catches for 96 yards and a touchdown. Detroit got the ball back via a Matt Ryan interception in the red zone on the very next drive. 

The Lions are hungry for the win after watching their undefeated streak come to an end against San Francisco last week. Johnson was shut out in that game, the only game this season in which he did not score a touchdown. With one quarter to play in Detroit, he might not be finished.
