Calvin Johnson received some recognition from the NFL this week after his best performance in nearly two years.

With six catches for 166 yards and a touchdown, Johnson was the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 6.

Johnson caught three passes of 39-plus yards in the Lions' 37-34 overtime win over the Bears Sunday at Ford Field. His 57-yard reception in overtime set up Matt Prater's game-winning field goal, and his 6-yard touchdown gave the Lions a lead with 21 seconds left in regulation.

Johnson's 166 receiving yards marked his best effort since he had 179 on Nov. 17, 2013 in a loss to the Steelers. This is Johnson's fourth offensive player of the week award, tying him with Barry Sanders for the most in Lions history.
