David Johnson makes history for hapless Cardinals

The Cardinals aren’t good this year. Cardinals running back David Johnson, in contrast, is really good.

The gap widened on Sunday, when the Cardinals lost again but Johnson generated more than 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first 11 games of the season.

Via the NFL, Johnson matches former Colts running back Edgerrin James as the only players in league history to accomplish that feat. James did it twice, in 2000 and 2005. (And, yes, in honor of James — maybe — we’ve mentioned Johnson’s accomplishment twice.)

For the year, Johnson has 921 yards rushing and 613 yards receiving. He also has 13 total touchdowns. But the Cardinals are 4-6-1.

Appearing earlier in the week on PFT Live, Johnson explained how he reconciles individual success with team struggles, and plenty of other topics.
