DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Despite the Lions’ 4-7 record, WR Calvin Johnson has posted some big numbers — and it hasn’t gone unnoticed.

On Thursday, Johnson was named the NFC offensive player of the month for November.

In the last four games, Johnson caught 32 passes for 619 yards — more than 19 yards per catch — and had three touchdowns. He averaged 154.8 yards per game this month.

97.1 The Ticket caught up with Johnson recently where he talked about his team’s lackluster performance.

“When you look at the record, you’re like, ‘Dang. We could’ve been in a totally different position right now,’” Johnson said. “It’s definitely an emotionally and physically taxing game, especially the last two.”

Barry Sanders is the only other Lions player to win the award.

Does this  mean once and for all the Madden curse is over? Tell us in comments below.
