On October 27, 2013, the Detroit Lions hosted the Dallas Cowboys at the friendly confines of Ford Field. Prior to the game, the outspoken Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant opened his mouth and let the crap spew out in regards to comparing himself to the great Calvin Johnson.

“I believe I can do whatever he can do,” Bryant said. “I think it’s just a pride thing. When it comes to football, just being on the field, it’s a mindset and having a mentality. I honestly believe when I’m there, I’ll be feeling like there’s nothing I can’t do. Whatever the coaches ask me to do, I’m going to do it.”

In case you have forgotten (how could you), Johnson absolutely torched the Cowboys with 14 catches for 329 yards and a touchdown as the Lions came from behind to win the game 31-30.

Here is a nice video we found on Twitter which helps us remember Megatron’s amazing effort.
