More Jerry Rice on Calvin Johnson

By Kevin Seifert

Because Monday night is Christmas Eve, ESPN's "Monday Night Football" airs on Saturday night in Week 15. That's tonight, and it happens to include the Detroit Lions, who will host the Atlanta Falcons. I'll be monitoring the game from NFC North blog headquarters, checking to see if Lions receiver Calvin Johnson can break Jerry Rice's record for receiving yardage in a season. He is 182 yards away. I'll post noteworthy items on the blog if necessary and will have a wrap-up shortly afterwards. For now, check out this video excerpt of an extended interview with Rice that will air on ESPN's "Monday Night Countdown" (on Saturday night, of course.)
