Welcome back David Johnson! The versatile running back found himself being, well, versatile. He rand the ball 18 times for 82-yards. He also had a 15-yard run in the first quarter called back thanks to a J.R. Sweezy holding call.
It was a questionable call but Johnson looked like he was reading the open holes he got very well. Johnson also was a huge factor in the passing game, something Cardinals fans have been yearning for.
Johnson had six receptions for 55-yards and the fourth quarter touchdown catch. With the receiving yardage, he was over 100-all purpose yards. Sound familiar?
That was something we were used to seeing in 2016 and something we started to see in his 2015 rookie season. As long as he can stay healthy, there is no reason he can’t keep this up.
The fact that Johnson got 24 touches and Chase Edmonds one should tell you everything that has changed from the 2018 team versus the 2019 team. Not to take away from Edmonds but Johnson is the number one guy and needs to be treated as such.
