And just a little reassurance that Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is the best in the NFL.  Watch a catch this was against the Colts on Sunday.  Just sucks for him that he plays for the Lions who are playing terrible this season.  The most under performing team in the entire league this season in my opinion.  Check out the catch of the week below. The Colts on the other hand are the real deal at 8-4.  Can't help but find myself rooting for these guys every week.  Just something about Andrew Luck that makes you pull for the guy. P.S. If you missed the game winning touchdown by the Colts with zero seconds left on the clock check it out here. Check out our Home Page for more stories and follow us on Twitter and Facebook
