Chris Johnson catches pass and runs 66 yards for touchdown (GIF)

Here’s the Chris Johnson we know, making and creating big plays. CJ2K showed his pure speed as he caught a pass from Jake Locker and ran for 66 yards basically untouched for the touchdown. It was an impressive catch and run, and it made me wonder why I sat him in my fantasy league today.

Coming into the game, Johnson had 106 carries for 357 yards and no touchdowns, along with 11 catches for 96 yards and one score. If anything else, he improved upon those stats. And here’s the clip to prove it:





After Johnson’s run, the Titans decreased San Francisco’s lead, and the score is currently 31-17 in favor of the 49ers. With a win, which will presumably happen as there are 2 minutes left in the contest, the 49ers will improve to 5-2 on the season, while Tennessee will fall to 3-4.

It’s good to see Johnson show us his old form, if even for one play. He’s had a lackluster 2013 campaign, but perhaps this touchdown was the spark he needed to get back to his old ways and turn into the CJ2K we saw a couple years ago.
