Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson wasn't even on the field for three minutes before he scored his first touchdown of the 2014 NFL season.

On the opening drive of Monday night's game against the New York Giants, Matthew Stafford was able to avoid the pressure and throw a bomb to a wide-open Megatron thanks to some blown coverage in the Giants secondary. 

ESPN's Monday Night Football tweeted a picture to show just how alone Johnson was on the play.

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James gave a shout-out to the four-time Pro Bowl receiver on Twitter after the score.

Calvin wasn't done there, however, as he scored another touchdown just seven minutes later. 

It was a huge night for Johnson, as he finished with 164 yards and two scores on seven catches in the 35-14 win.
