CJ is NFL’s Rushing Leader Over Last 4 Weeks

Posted by Gary Glenn on December 8, 2011 – 5:23 pm

Chris Johnson appears to be back on track — and in a big way.

Johnson rushed for 153 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Tennessee’s 23-17 victory at Buffalo. He notched 190 rushing yards the previous week vs. Tampa Bay, giving him back-to-back 150-yard rushing efforts for the second time in his career.

So after totaling just 366 rushing yards through the first eight games, Johnson has rushed for an NFL-high 486 yards over the last four weeks. His 5.7-yard rushing average is second in the NFL over that span, behind only San Diego’s Ryan Mathews’ 5.9-yard average.
