Johnson Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week


Chris Johnson captured his third career AFC Offensive Player of the Week honor following his 190-yard rushing game vs. Tampa Bay.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Titans running back Chris Johnson has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week following his 190-yard rushing performance in Tennessee's 23-17 victory over Tampa Bay last Sunday.

Johnson rushed for season-best 190 yards on 23 carries (8.3 average), ranking second in the NFL in Week 12 behind Arizona's Beanie Wells (228 rushing yards). 

His 190 rushing yards are the most in the AFC this season for a single-game.

Johnson's rushing total was the third-highest in his four-year career (228, 197, 190), and the performance ranks 13th in franchise history.  His 190 yards also is the fourth-highest total in the NFL in 2011. 

Johnson went over the 100-yard mark for the 27th time in his career and the third time in 2011, while surpassing 150 rushing yards for the sixth time in his career. 

Four of Johnson's runs went for 20 yards or longer (34, 25, 24 and 20), including a long of 34 yards during the game-winning drive in the fourth quarter. He averaged 8.3 yards per carry on the day.

This is third time Johnson has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week in his career. He also captured the award in Week 8 of the 2009 season and in Week 5 of the 2010 season.
