Lions QB Matthew Stafford and WR Calvin Johnson connected for their 50th touchdown this Sunday.
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and All-Pro wide receiver Calvin Johnson have quite the on-field chemistry. The Stafford-to-Johnson connection yielded its 50th touchdown with a one-yard scoring strike against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
They’re one of only five active quarterback-receiver tandems with 50 career touchdowns, according to Lions senior writer Tim Twentyman.
That's now the 50th TD connection between Stafford and Johnson. 1 of 5 active QB/WR duos with that many. #MINvsDET
Johnson’s hot start helped the Lions jump out to an early led over the Vikings. After earning an NFC Offensive Player of the Week honor for Detroit’s first win of the season, Johnson is making a difference again and the 30-year-old pass-catcher appears to be pretty excited about it.
