A David Johnson touchdown run has given the Cardinals an early 7-0 lead over the Jets.

Johnson went virtually untouched for 58 yards on the first play of the Cardinals’ second possession. The teams traded punts to start the game.

The Cardinals’ line opened up a big hole on the left side, and Johnson was patient enough to let his teammates make their blocks before he turned upfield.

It was Johnson’s 19th career touchdown, tying Ottis Anderson for the most touchdowns by a Cardinals player in his first two seasons.

    If I’m Mike Maccagnan I am leaving Bowles and his crappy defensive scheme and staff in Arizona. Revis might look old and the secondary might look crappy but for Bowles to blitz on every down leaving the corners on an island is unfair. Playing Sheldon Richardson at linebacker, idiotic, playing Calvin Pryor in coverage against receivers, idiotic, he’s more of an LB/SS. Too much talent is being wasted on this team it’s frustrating.
