Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson has had a relatively slow start to the season. Although Johnson scored touchdowns in each of Buffalo’s first three games, he’s on pace for three-year lows in receptions and yards.
Bills G.M. Buddy Nix, who signed off on Johnson’s new five-year, $36.25 million contract in March, isn’t sweating the reduced early-season production.
“Steve has had the best two weeks of practice that I’ve seen him have since I’ve been around him,” Nix said. “I expect him to have a breakout game [against the Cardinals]. He’s determined to get this team winning just like most of our players are, and I look to him to have a really good game.”
The Bills could use a few more breakout games on the defensive side of the ball this week. They’ve allowed the second most yards in the league, and the second most points through five weeks of NFL action.
