Chris Johnson has surpassed 90 yards rushing in three straight weeks for the first time since the final three games of his 2,000-yard season in 2009.
"It's just stepping up and making plays," Johnson said. "I have to give the offensive line some credit for keeping those guys off me and giving me some holes. It's a situation where the coach is just believing in me and (continuing) to give me the ball. Receiving better line play while also running with considerably more purpose, Johnson will enter Week 9 in the top-10 in rushing. This, after he was being out-rushed by multiple quarterbacks early in the season. The light has flipped on. We can only hope it stays that way.
