Night net Andre Johnson and Anquan Boldin did something on Sunday that hadn't been seen in the same game since they were both busy dominating their final collegiate year in the state of Florida.  Johnson and Boldin became the first two players age-35 or older to catch a touchdown in the same game since September 29, 2002. On that day, future Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Tim Brown each hit paydirt for a

Super Bowl-bound Raiders team.  The 36-year-old Boldin and 35-year-old Johnson have each embarked on their 14th season with a new team, playing out the twighlight of their careers as peripheral pieces before eventually heading to Canton with Rice and Brown. Both guys showed they still have plenty left to contribute with key touchdowns on Sunday, as Johnson's Titans squeaked out a 16-15 win over Boldin's Lions in Detroit.MORE: Ranking the best receivers in the Night net Boldin nabbed the game's first TD, catching a pass from Matthew Stafford to give Detroit a 9-0 lead.
