Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson has one helluva season, becoming just the second player in NFL history to start the season with 13 straight 100-yard games from scrimmage.
Johnson joined former Cardinals running back Edgerrin James as the only two players in NFL history to achieve the feat. If he has one more game like this on Sunday, he’ll sit atop the list alone, according to ESPN.
“That’s a dream come true for sure,” Johnson said. “To be the first player to ever to do that is very good, and I definitely hope I’m able to do that.”
In eight of 13 games this season, Johnson reached 100 yards without passing 100 yards in either rushing or receiving. He recorded a season high of 185 yards in Week 5 against San Francisco, a season-high 157 came from rushing. He also had a season-high 103 receiving yards against Atlanta in Week 12.
Only two other players have streaks of 100-yard games longer than Johnson’s and James’ 13. Barry Sanders did it in 15 straight games in 1997 and Marcus Allen in 1985 with 14 — whom Johnson could tie Sunday. Both Allen and Sanders’ streaks didn’t start in Week 1 of their respective seasons, though.
