Calvin Johnson has career-high 329 yards in come-from-behind win over the Cowboys

This just in: Megatron is good.

Before Sunday, Lions receiver Calvin Johnson's career-high was 244 yards against the Packers on New Year's Day in 2012.

Not only did he record his sixth ever 200-yard game (counting his only playoff game), but Johnson set a new career high with 329 yards on 14 receptions, which is also a career high, in the team's come-from-behind win over the Cowboys.

The only player to ever have more receiving yards in a game is Flipper Anderson, who had 336 yards for the Rams in 1989.

In addition, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for 488 yards, which was the second-highest total of his career.

The Cowboys have now allowed four 400-yard passers in eight games this season. The other three were Eli Manning (450), Philip Rivers (401) and Peyton Manning (414).

Through eight games, Megatron now has 47 catches for 821 yards and seven touchdowns.
