Cardinals’ David Johnson named NFC offensive player of the week

Arizona’s David Johnson is emerging as one of the best running backs in the NFL, and he’s being recognized for his latest performance.

Johnson was named the NFC offensive player of the week for his 157-yard, two-touchdown performance in last week’s win over the 49ers.

The Cardinals haven’t had much in the way of running backs over the last couple decades, and they haven’t had a running back win offensive player of the week since 1996, when LeShon Johnson got the honor.

But in Johnson, the Cardinals have a very impressive running back who’s only 24 years old.

    He’ll be the best until he plays the Seahawks. Then his stats will drop off the cliff.

    “He’ll be the best until he plays the Seahawks. Then his stats will drop off the cliff.”

    The legion of boom… ain’t what it once was.

    Johnson will rush for over 100 yards on the Seahawks too.👍

    Not sure why a Seahawks’ fan since 2013’s opinion is relevant.

    Elliot should have won this award. Also had 2 TDs, 171 total yards vs Johnson’s 185, but did so with 12 less touches than Johnson. He averaged nearly 9 yards a carry against the Bengals. Johnson had his game against the 49ers.
