Way to go Falcons, Congrats to Megatron!

The Atlanta Falcons defeated Detroit 31 – 18 and secured home field advantage for the playoffs as the number one (1) seed in the NFC.  The Falcons looked great in the first half, bad in the third quarter, and then rallied and were great in the 4th.  Matt Ryan ended up with four passing touchdowns.  On the other side, history was made!  Calvin Johnson had 225 receiving yards and surpassed the record for single season reception yards previously held by Jerry Rice.  After the catch that broke the record, he ran across the field to the Detroit sideline, gave his Dad a hug and the ball, and headed back out to the field.  What a classy young man and huge talent he is (former GT great)!  With one game left, is 2000 plus receiving yard possible for Megatron this year?
