Chris Johnson continued to write his name in the NFL record book on Sunday. 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. --** Tennessee running back Chris Johnson has matched the NFL record shared by Earl Campbell and Eric Dickerson with his sixth straight game of 125-plus rushing yards.

Johnson ran for 154 yards and a touchdown in Tennessee's 20-17 victory over Arizona Sunday at LP Field.

Johnson topped 125 yards with an 85-yard touchdown run (4th-longest in team history) in the third quarter, giving him 150 yards on 15 carries. Campbell set the mark in 1980 when the Titans were the Houston Oilers, and Dickerson matched him in 1984.

The second-year running back already passed Barry Sanders for the best November rushing the ball in the NFL since the merger with the AFL in 1970. He needed 55 yards coming into Sunday's game to pass Sanders.

Johnson has rushed for 800 yards in November, the most by a player in a calendar month since 1970.
