Much of the focus continued to be on running back Chris Johnson. Limited to 18 yards on 10 carries, and booed for much of the game.
Asked about the state of the rushing attack, Johnson insisted he is not the problem. Since signing a $53.5 million contract extension in September, however, he has 268 yards and is on pace to finish with a career-worst 715.
Johnson didn’t call out the offensive line, but said he’s 100 percent physically after holding out for all of training camp and is doing everything the same way he did while leading the NFL in rushing yards over his first three seasons.
“I feel like I’ve been back,’’ Johnson said. “I can’t say that that’s the problem with the running game.”
Johnson has been killing fantasy owners and not even playing as an RB2 for most of this season. At this point, owners may have no choice but to stick with him in hopes he can turn it around, but the signs just haven't been there that it's happening anytime soon.
