VIDEO: Calvin Johnson Catches Game-Winner* Vs. Vikings In Overtime

Local products Calvin Johnson and Matthew Stafford have combined to make something of the Detroit Lions, who are now 3-0 after having come back from 20 points down to beat the Minnesota Vikings in overtime, the franchise's first victory against Minnesota since the third century or some such.

Here's the video of the 40-yard catch that set up the winning field goal in overtime:

Every time, it's cool to see former Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets great and Georgia native Johnson combine with the Georgia Bulldogs' Stafford. Feel like I always need to explain their biographies, for our out-of-town guests. So far this year, they've worked together for 225 yards and six touchdowns in three games.

* Yes, they had to kick a field goal afterward.
