Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson says he enjoys having his teammates pull for him as he tries to break Jerry Rice's single-season record for yards receiving.  The Lions don't have much else to root for this year.

Detroit has dropped five straight and will finish the season with a losing record, one year after winning 10 games and breaking the franchise's 11-year postseason drought.

Johnson has been a bright spot.  He has a league-high 1,546 yards receiving going into Sunday's game at Arizona. With three games left, he is 303 yards from breaking Rice's single-season mark set in 1995 with the San Francisco 49ers.

Cardinals star receiver Larry Fitzgerald says Johnson is the best in the business.
