CJ2K: Johnson slighly off pace for 2,000

Titans RB Chris Johnson posted his ninth consecutive 100-yard rushing game in Week 15, rushing for 104 yards against the Dolphins to tie for the third longest streak in NFL history. Johnson now trails only Barry Sanders (14 in 1997) and Marcus Allen (11 in 1985-86) in consecutive 100-yard games.

Johnson remains on pace to challenge for the NFL record in yards from scrimmage. He totaled 159 yards from scrimmage Sunday and has 2,176 for the season, averaging 155.4 yards per game. He’s currently on pace for 2,486 yards from scrimmage, which would eclipse the record set by Marshall Faulk (2,429) in 1999.

In his quest for the NFL’s sixth 2,000-yard rushing season, Johnson is slightly off pace after 14 games. He current has 1,730 yards, putting him on track for 1,977 yards this season. He would need 270 yards over the final two weeks.

The Titans’ final two opponents are the Chargers and Seahawks, who rank in the middle orĀ bottom half of the league in rushing yards allowed entering Week 15. The Chargers rank 21st (117.1), while the Seahawks are 12th (104.3).
