Calvin_Johnson_LionsOctober isn’t quite over yet, but the NFL has decided to go ahead and hand out the NFC offensive player of the month award anyway.

The recipient is a guy who had a month’s worth of yardage in one game last Sunday. Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson’s monster day against the Cowboys was one of the most productive days a receiver has had in the history of the game and that helped make him the choice for the monthly honor even though he missed one of Detroit’s four games during the month.
