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.
