Johnson's November a record month
By Paul Kuharsky
Chris Johnson continued his historic march with another big game Sunday in the Titans’ win over Arizona.
Here’s a breakdown from the NFL of what he’s doing:
- Johnson gained 154 rushing yards (8.6 average) on 18 carries in the Titans’ 20-17 win over Arizona. Johnson has posted at least 125 rushing yards in six consecutive games, tying the NFL record set by Pro Football Hall of Famers Earl Campbell (1980) and Eric Dickerson (1984).
- Johnson is the first player in NFL history with six consecutive games of 125+ rushing yards and a 5.0+ yards per carry average in each of those games. Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Brown (1958) accomplished this feat in five consecutive games.
- Johnson rushed for 800 yards in November, the most by a player in a calendar month since 1970.
