The Detroit Lions' confidence continues to grow. 

A week after safety James Ihedigbo said that the team has 'championship DNA' and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh agreed while talking about the opportunity that his team has for success this season, Calvin Johnson says that the Lions are "definitely in a place" where they feel they can win the Super Bowl.

"We need to win a Super Bowl," Johnson said on the NFL Network on Wednesday. “That’s the No. 1 thing."

Johnson credits the Lions' newfound confidence to a change in the team atmosphere thanks to new head coach Jim Caldwell.

“It’s an overall change and vibe here, and we love it,” Johnson said. “We’re going to go out and bust our butts every day because Jim is such a great guy, a great leader for our team. And he’s helped bring us together, and we’re doing a lot of stuff on our own off the field to keep that camaraderie going.”

Detroit went 7-9 in a disappointing 2013, finishing behind the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears in the NFC North.
