Calvin Johnson will become the first 2,000-yard receiver
Hard to believe in this era of 5,000-yard passers and electrifying aerial offenses, but the NFL single-season record for receiving yards was set way back in 1995. It's not a surprise that it was Jerry Rice who set it, with 1,848 yards for the 49ers, but it's amazing it lasted so long. It won't last beyond this season, with Johnson, who had 1,618 yards last year, teaming with Matthew Stafford to terrorize the atrocious pass defenses in the NFC North. No Lions divisional opponent finished higher than 26th in passing yards allowed per game last season.
