VIDEO: Calvin Johnson Game Winner For Detroit Lions Vs. Oakland Raiders

Megatron didn't exactly want the Detroit Lions to drop another winnable game. With his team needing to drive the length of the field to win it against the Oakland Raiders, he went into total Transformers mode.

Calvin Johnson slipped past double coverage on two Raiders defenders, then came back for the throw by Matthew Stafford and hauled it in to set up Detroit with first down in the red zone. After some unproductive downs, Stafford decided to go back to his main target, and the eventual result wasn't good at all for the Lions.

Check out the video of what happened after the jump.


Johnson's big snag probably ensured the Lions will be headed back to the NFC Playoffs. The Raiders are left wondering what could have been if they held on.

To discuss Johnson's big-time plays for Detroit, head to Pride of Detroit to talk with Lions fans, or go to Silver and Black Pride to see how Raiders fans feel.
