9. Record-Setting Catch

Week: Week 16

What a year it was for Calvin Johnson. Not only did he set the all-time single season receiving yards record (1848, surpassing Jerry Rice), but he also set records in consecutive 100-yard games (eight) and consecutive games with 10 or more receptions (four) and tied for the record for most 100-yard games in a season (11, shared with Michael Irvin). If he retired today, Megatron would probably still be a Hall of Famer, and he has proven worthy of every cent of the eight-year, $132 million extension he signed with the Lions in the offseason. While his record-setting grab wasn't the flashiest of his plays, it was a fitting stamp for a truly transcendent season.
