Game Recaps

2011 Week 2 vs MIA (1 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson was not able to capitalize on increased playing time with Kevin Walter missing the game. He looked good on his lone catch, but Schaub seldom got to him in his progressions.

2011 Week 6 vs BAL (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Johnson was targeted a single time on a deep throw in the first quarter. Derrick Mason took playing time from him despite having just joined the team this week.

2011 Week 7 vs TEN (1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Johnson saw just one target on a pass for six yards, just short of the first down marker. He was not a factor in the overall offense.

2011 Week 10 vs TB (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Johnson officially had 1 target, though it was a ball that Schaub was throwing away out of the back of the end zone, as Johnson was well covered.

2011 Week 17 vs TEN (2 / 2 / 45 / 1 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)

Johnson made the most of his opportunity against the Titans, catching a deep 40 yard pass from Jake Delhomme as well as a late touchdown that almost delivered a win to Houston. On the play, Johnson lined up split to the right and ran a curl route to the back of the endzone. He broke off the route and ran across the back line in time for Jake Delhomme to zip a pass to him for the score.

2010 Week 1 vs CHI (1 / 1 / 24 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson had a nice 24 yard reception on the final drive of the game. It was his only target and he made a nice catch in traffic to start off the drive.

2010 Week 2 vs PHI (4 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

The "other" Johnson was targeted four times but only managed to pull in one of those balls for a four yard haul. Despite his feeble stat line, Bryant Johnson does seem to be factoring into what the Lions are trying to do on offense. We're just going to have to wait and see more games before we can definitively decipher Bryant Johnson's true value to the team.

2010 Week 3 vs MIN (4 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson was targeted four times but could not come up with a catch. He dropped his first pass early in the first quarter and the other three attempts in his area were either two high or well out of his reach.

2010 Week 4 vs GB (5 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson was the #2 WR in the game for the Lions with Nate Burleson inactive. He had a couple nice receptions including a deep pass over the middle on the opening drive, and was even targeted in the end zone when the Lions were looking to take the lead. However, the pass was well defended, and the Lions were forced to settle for a FG. Johnson had an OK game, but is still at the #4-#5 receiving option on the team.

2010 Week 6 vs NYG (6 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)

Johnson saw multiple passes but couldn't haul most of them in. On his first reception, he did show a good extra effort after being hit to extend and try to get the ball a little closer to field goal range. On his second catch, he was able to haul the ball in while in stride and use his body to block out the defender. Johnson is the type of player who often flashes talent but doesn't seem to be able to play consistently enough.

2010 Week 8 vs WAS (3 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

He dropped a quick stop route early in the game and never was a factor in this deep receiving corps for the Lions. He is a nice big target, and got a clean catch as he sat down in a soft zone. Johnson had an important 2 point conversion, but really did little else.

2010 Week 9 vs NYJ (4 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson was not a big factor in the game, though QB Matt Stafford did look to him on several long attempts. However, Stafford overthrew Johnson once and on another, Johnson just couldn't make the catch. His sole reception came on a short pass near the end of the third quarter.

2010 Week 10 vs BUF (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Johnson got one deep end zone target right before a Lions field goal, but otherwise was not involved. Forget about "former first-round pick", Johnson is a journeyman.

2010 Week 12 vs NE (4 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson caught just two of his four targets for a total of 26 yards against New England. The former starter is now fighting with Derrick Williams for WR3 chances in Detroit, making Johnson practically worthless as long as Calvin Johnson and Nate Burleson remain healthy.

2010 Week 14 vs GB (3 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)

The "other" Johnson made a couple of impressive catches, including a nice leaping grab to beat his man coverage at the sideline for a first down. Unfortunately, his opportunities were few, and with Drew Stanton under center, his looks don't look to be increasing any time soon.

2010 Week 16 vs MIA (1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson's one reception was an eight yard come-back route that went for a first down. The Lions lined him up on the same side as Calvin Johnson and when Calvin took off down the field, he drew the defensive coverage to him. Bryant Johnson sat down near the first down marker, made the reception and turned up field for the first down. It was his only catch of the day.

2010 Week 17 vs MIN (5 / 3 / 49 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson had a serviceable game for the Lions, finishing with three receptions but he had almost 50 yards in receiving. His first action was on the opening drive - a quick pass to Johnson and he was able to muscle his way for a nine yard gain. His next was a nice 18 yard catch and run on the opening drive of the second quarter where Johnson made a few guys miss to turn a short gain into a medium one. In the fourth quarter, Johnson came up big, setting up the TD run for Maurice Morris with a 23 yard reception where he was working one on one against the defender and made an excellent grab to set up the score. He was targeted on a couple other passes but he dropped one and the other two were way off target.

2009 Week 1 vs NO (8 / 4 / 45 / 0 rec)

Johnson was targeted eight times by Matthew Stafford, primarily on short sideline and slant routes. He had one red zone target in the corner of the end zone that was thrown too far outside to catch.

2009 Week 2 vs MIN (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)


Bryant Johnson proves that a being first round draft pick doesn't mean anything. Anyone thinking that Johnson would have a solid impact for the Lions this season should have watched this game. Johnson was a complete non-participant. The one time his name was called, Johnson had broken away from the Viking secondary and was wide open down the left side of the field. Stafford's excitement got the better of him and he overthrew Johnson by a mile. He was never targeted again.

2009 Week 3 vs WAS (11 / 4 / 73 / 1 rec)

Bryant Johnson was the star of the Detroit Offense. Despite multiple drops early in the game, Stafford kept looking to him at key moments and he came up big. On the TD pass, Stafford put the ball up and Bryant Johnson went up to get it. It was an excellent play between QB and WR. He also drew a key pass interference call on the series that led to the Maurice Morris TD run. When Stafford looked deep, it was Bryant Johnson that he was looking to. Stafford overthrew him a few times, and there were several passes underneath that could have been bigger plays if Stafford had better touch on the ball. He was a big key to the Lions' first win.

2009 Week 4 vs CHI (6 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson has more than he could ever ask for as an NFL wideout at this stage of his career - defenses have to key on Calvin Johnson every week and Bryant Johnson as a result draws the second corner and thinner coverage in practically every contest. Despite all that, Johnson converted only half of his six targets for a total of 27 yards against a weak Chicago secondary in Week 4. Johnson's performances are highly erratic as sometimes he will put up a good game, but he remains a very questionable weekly fantasy player.

2009 Week 5 vs PIT (8 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson had eight targets against the Steelers in Week 5, tied for the team lead with fellow wideout Dennis Northcutt. That number gets an asterisk though because Calvin Johnson went down in the first quarter and had to leave the game. Johnson worked the intermediate and deeper routes, stretching the field without Calvin Johnson in the lineup, but Daunte Culpepper never got him the ball when he was open, including a deep 40 yarder in the third quarter where the ball sailed well over his head. Johnson was credited on Monday with four catches and 35 yards, but the box score was wrong - Dennis Northcutt actually grabbed his late nine yard catch. Look for the NFL to make a scoring / stat change sometime this week after the game is reviewed.

2009 Week 6 vs GB (4 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec)

With Calvin Johnson out again in week 6, Bryant Johnson lined up as the Lions #1 WR again. Of course this should mean a slight uptick in production for Johnson however he had a quiet game and was really only targeted a handful of times. Johnson managed to reel in a couple of intermediate passes for a total of 27 yards. Johnson is an enigma, a talented WR that has yet to translate his talent into consistent NFL success. He is a risky play in all leagues at this point.

2009 Week 8 vs STL (8 / 2 / 43 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson had a terrible game. As the #1 WR on the team with Calvin Johnson sidelined with an injury, Bryant had a golden opportunity to step up. Instead he dropped more passes than he caught and clearly was not on the same page as QB Matt Stafford for most of the game. They connected on one deep pass to start the fourth quarter. It eventually led to Stafford's TD run and tying the game. Aside from that, Johnson was a total non factor.

2009 Week 9 vs SEA (4 / 2 / 35 / 1 rec)

Johnson had a nice, one-handed catch in the first quarter for a 29 yard TD. Aside from that, he was quiet for most of the game. He was targeted more down the field, but Stafford's passing did not really give him many opportunities to come down with the ball. He remains the #2 receiver on a team that is going to be throwing the ball a lot the rest of the season.

2009 Week 10 vs MIN (6 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

Johnson is the #2 WR for the Lions, but has really not contributed more than one or two receptions a game. One of his two receptions came during garbage time late in the fourth quarter. He also dropped a potential TD late in the second quarter and the Lions had to settle for a FG before half time. Bryant Johnson has limited fantasy value, and does not contribute well enough to be considered a legitimate starting option.

2009 Week 11 vs CLE (5 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)

Johnson caught one long pass down the sideline, but wasn't a major factor.

2009 Week 12 vs GB (3 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec)

Johnson continues to take a backseat behind Calvin Johnson and Dennis Northcutt at the WR position for the Lions. He was targeted a paltry 3 times and caught a single short pass of 17 yards on the game. Not an option worth looking at in almost any format.

2009 Week 13 vs CIN (4 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

Johnson was the second wide receiver in most offensive sets, but was generally not on the same page with Matthew Stafford on timing routes and, though targeted five times, saw only a couple catchable passes.

2009 Week 14 vs BAL (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson had two targets in the second quarter of the Week 14 contest against the Baltimore ravens, grabbing one for a short gain of eight yards. He was not a significant contributor after that drive.

2009 Week 15 vs ARI (8 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)

Johnson had a short catch and run, but otherwise was targeted on incompletions and an interception. He has been a free agent bust for the Lions.

2009 Week 16 vs SF (4 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)

Johnson had two minor receptions in the first half, but both were for first downs. He was targeted on a few deep balls, but they were not thrown well enough for him to make a catch on any of them. He did draw a pass interference penalty that extended a drive but it eventually ended with a turnover.

2009 Week 17 vs CHI (6 / 4 / 42 / 1 rec)

Bryant has been a relatively minor player in the Detroit offense this season, but he had his second best game this season, tying his season high with four receptions and reaching the end zone for only his third time this season. Two of his receptions came in the fourth quarter when the Lions were fighting to get back into the game. Early in the fourth quarter, Johnson took a short pass from Daunte Culpepper and split through two defenders for a 12 yard gain and a first down. On their final possession of the game, Johnson came up with a big 3rd and 3 reception for another 12 yard gain and a first down. He had two other targets in the game, but the ball was not catchable in either case.

2008 Week 1 vs ARI (5 / 3 / 48 / 0 rec)

Johnson caught three balls for 48 yards, and appears to be the San Francisco deep threat.

2008 Week 2 vs SEA (7 / 6 / 78 / 1 rec)

Johnson caught all but one pass thrown his way, including the three yard TD reception in the second quarter that got the 49ers back in the game. Four of his receptions went for over ten yards.

2008 Week 3 vs DET (1 / 1 / 25 / 0 rec)

Johnson caught the only pass thrown to him for 25 yards.

2008 Week 4 vs NO (4 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson was unable to connect with O'Sullivan on any of the four passes that come his way. The passes were either to high or behind him.

2008 Week 5 vs NE (4 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)

WR Bryant Johnson was not a big factor in the loss for the 49ers.

2008 Week 8 vs SEA (4 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)

WR Bryant Johnson had a quiet game but no 49ers' receiver pulled in more than four receptions on the day.

2008 Week 10 vs ARI (4 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)

Bryant Johnson had a fairly quiet game, catching three balls for 24 yards. He only garnered four targets from Shaun Hill while the other three receivers were targeted 26 times.

2008 Week 11 vs STL (4 / 4 / 56 / 1 rec)

Johnson caught every pass thrown his way, including a two yard TD reception in the second quarter that capped the 49ers scoring. He also broke loose for a 42 yard catch and run that set up the second 49er TD.

2008 Week 12 vs DAL (9 / 4 / 56 / 0 rec)

Johnson teamed up with Isaac Bruce to form a good pass catching combo for Shaun Hill. Johnson was targeted five times in the opening period, but was not able to come up with any catches. Most of the passes thrown his direction were slightly off target, enabling the defensive back to recover in time to break up the pass. He was targeted three times in the end zone and almost had a touchdown, but he bobbled the pass and ended up dropping it.

2008 Week 13 vs BUF (3 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)

Johnson was targeted early and seldom, with two targets in the first quarter and just one in the third. He caught one pass for 16 yards.

2008 Week 14 vs NYJ (8 / 6 / 49 / 1 rec)

Johnson ran a variety of routes, and was able to get open most of the time he was targeted. His only missed target came when he got open deep but Hill missed him. Johnson used his size effectively in addition to his route-running, exemplified best on his touchdown catch.

2008 Week 15 vs MIA (8 / 5 / 41 / 0 rec)

Many of the receptions and targets for Johnson were of the short variety. They appear to be using his size to run slant and out routes. Johnson also had a drop on the day.

2008 Week 16 vs STL (9 / 4 / 60 / 0 rec)

Johnson made his few catches count, as all three were for first downs. Hill didn't look for him much early in the game, but when it counted, he came through.

2008 Week 17 vs WAS (5 / 2 / 43 / 0 rec)

Though he started and was tied for the team lead in targets, Johnson only managed to haul in two receptions. Though he made the most of them, averaging 21.5 yards per, it was still a mediocre performance.

2007 Week 1 vs SF (3 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Johnson came in when the Cardinals went to three or four receiver sets. He was targeted three times, but also had a hard time getting open.

2007 Week 2 vs SEA (2 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)

Johnson caught both balls thrown to him for first downs, both also in the first half. He doesn't appear to get any looks until third down, as either Boldin or Fitzgerald are the intended targets more often than not.

2007 Week 3 vs BAL (4 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)

Johnson's looks almost exclusively came on medium and deep routes down the field. He struggled with some drops, and his only catch came from Warner on a short route that he took for 18 yards. Leinart targeted him once while Warner threw four balls his way.

2007 Week 4 vs PIT (7 / 3 / 37 / 0 rec)

Johnson played in place of the injured Anquan Boldin and hauled in three catches for 37 yards. He ran mainly deep routes in the four receiver Cardinal offensive scheme.

2007 Week 5 vs STL (8 / 6 / 80 / 0 rec)

Johnson started the game for the injured WR Anquan Boldin and responded with a good game. He got the Cardinals first catch of the game on a slant for 17 yards. Johnson was a frequent target in the first half as the Rams doubled WR Larry Fitzgerald often. He finished the half with five catches for 70 yards in the first half. Johnson only had one catch for ten yards in the second half.

2007 Week 6 vs CAR (6 / 4 / 29 / 0 rec)

Johnson caught four balls for 29 yards, but suffered from the inconsistent play of the Cardinals quarterback.

2007 Week 7 vs WAS (5 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)

With the Arizona Cardinals running many three and four receiver sets, Bryant Johnson saw plenty of playing time. He turned his four targets into three catches for 27 yards.

2007 Week 9 vs TB (4 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)

Johnson caught one of the four balls thrown his way for only 14 yards.

2007 Week 10 vs DET (4 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)

Johnson caught all four balls thrown his way for 40 yards. It was one of the more productive games for Johnson

2007 Week 11 vs CIN (3 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)

Johnson caught just one pass for 13 yards.

2007 Week 12 vs SF (7 / 5 / 80 / 0 rec)

Johnson finished the game with five receptions and 80 yards. He was targeted deep twice and hauled in a pass late in the fourth quarter on a over the shoulder grab down to the 49ers one yard line. Two plays later Rackers kicked the tying field goal to send the game into overtime.

2007 Week 13 vs CLE (11 / 6 / 56 / 1 rec)

Johnson became the de facto go to receiver for the Cardinals in the wake of Fitzgerald's and Boldin's injuries. Most of the pass plays were designed to go toward Johnson and he handled the pressure admirably. While not flashing break away speed, Johnson had success working the sides of the field, running out patterns and, occasionally, going over the middle. His touchdown catch was a nice one yard reception from Warner to the left side of the field, beating double coverage and coming down with the pass.

2007 Week 14 vs SEA (8 / 1 / 5 / 1 rec)

In a game where Johnson needed to come up big, he only had one catch for five yards, but it was for a touchdown. Johnson had two dropped passes in the game, and caught only one of the nine balls thrown his way.

2007 Week 15 vs NO (3 / 2 / 35 / 0 rec)

Johnson had only two catches for 35 yards, but one came on a crucial third down and long situation to keep a Cardinals drive alive

2007 Week 16 vs ATL (5 / 3 / 46 / 0 rec)

Johnson had three catches for 46 yards, with a long reception of 19 yards. That reception came late in the game and allowed the Cardinals to continue their game tying drive.

2007 Week 17 vs STL (7 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)

Johnson had two catches for ten yards.

2006 Week 1 vs SF (3 / 2 / 51 / 0 rec)

Johnson was an important contributor on the Cardinals' opening drive. He caught a 12 yard pass for a first down and then converted on third and ten for a 39 yard gain. He was only targeted once more in the game and did not make the catch.

2006 Week 2 vs SEA (3 / 1 / 40 / 1 rec)

Johnson made the best of his lone catch sprinting 40 yards for the Cardinals' only touchdown.

2006 Week 3 vs STL (2 / 1 / 54 / 0 rec, 1 / -3 / 0 rush)

Johnson's targets are few and far between due to the behemoth receivers ahead of him, but he did make the most of his opportunities. He took what was a short pass underneath and turned it upfield for a 54 yard gain, getting great downfield blocking from his fellow receivers on the play.

2006 Week 4 vs ATL (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Johnson had two drops in the game, but both plays resulted in positive yards for the Cardinals. The first was in the first half when he drew a pass interference flag. The second was a horrendous drop on a deep out that almost killed the best offense momentum Arizona had showed, but a Cardinals' penalty bailed him out.

2006 Week 5 vs KC (9 / 6 / 82 / 0 rec)

Johnson, who is considered the third receiver in the Arizona attack, was the most targeted receiver in the game by Matt Leinart. He pulled in six of the ten balls thrown his way during this contest and had a team high 82 yards receiving. Bryant Johnson was new starting quarterback Matt Leinart's favorite target during this contest.

2006 Week 6 vs CHI (7 / 2 / 17 / 1 rec)

Johnson started the game in the absence of Larry Fitzgerald. He began well with a six yard reception to convert on third and six. Leinart went back to Johnson at the end of the drive, and Johnson was able to cut past the closest defender for an 11 yard touchdown. He failed to catch any of the other passes thrown in his direction and finished with less targets than Troy Walters.

2006 Week 7 vs OAK (7 / 3 / 87 / 0 rec)

Johnson stepped in for injured WR Larry Fitzgerald and responded with three catches for 87 yards. Johnson showed some big play ability, catching a 58 yard pass and also showed he has a good on the field IQ. He made a smart play, after a mid range reception, when he wasn't touched by any Raiders' defenders, got back to his feet, and gained some more yards after the catch.

2006 Week 8 vs GB (5 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

Johnson was guilty of at least one dropped pass, but many of the passes thrown his way were not catchable.

2006 Week 10 vs DAL (2 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)

Johnson's role has been reduced because Fitzgerald is back in the lineup and he has dropped too many passes.

2006 Week 11 vs DET (5 / 4 / 47 / 1 rec)

Johnson was rewarded with the touchdown reception after coming up with a nice catch for a first down to bring the ball to the two yard line. All four of Johnson's catches came in the first half.

2006 Week 12 vs MIN (8 / 4 / 48 / 0 rec)

Johnson caught his first pass on 12 yard strike to the Minnesota five yard line in the second quarter. He had four catches for 48 yards in the first half. He was shut out in the second half as Boldin and Fitzgerald got almost all the passes throw in there direction.

2006 Week 13 vs STL (3 / 2 / 38 / 0 rec)

With the Cardinals leading all afternoon and concentrating on the rushing game, Johnson had a lesser role than in previous weeks.

2006 Week 14 vs SEA (5 / 3 / 81 / 1 rec)

Johnson scored a 56 yard touchdown on the Cardinals' first play of the game. He was targeted deep and was able to get clear after Marcus Trufant slipped while trying to cover him. Johnson converted a third and seven by making an 11 yard reception three drives later. He then gained 14 yards on a slant on the following possession to keep alive a drive that led to a field goal. All of Johnson's targets came in the first half.

2006 Week 15 vs DEN (5 / 2 / 33 / 0 rec)

Johnson only held onto two of the three passes Leinart meant for him and one of his misses was a drop that should have been a touchdown. In a gross understatement, he did not have a good day.

2006 Week 16 vs SF (4 / 4 / 53 / 0 rec)

Johnson caught all four balls thrown his way for 53 yards.

2006 Week 17 vs SD (4 / 3 / 76 / 0 rec)

65 of Johnson's 76 yards came on the next to last drive for Arizona, when San Diego's defensive coverage was a bit softer and the pass rush was lacking. And Johnson's biggest impact on the game didn't even come offensively; it came on special teams. Early in the third quarter, with San Diego leading 17-7 but punting for the first time all game, Johnson muffed the catch in front of his own goal line. Tim Dobbins recovered the ball in the end zone for a touchdown and a 24-7 lead that pretty well put the game out of reach.

2005 Week 1 vs NYG (11 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec)

Johnson had two catches for 27 yards, but was targeted 12 times.

2005 Week 2 vs STL (7 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)

Johnson is the deep threat for Arizona, and QB Kurt Warner looked to him often to try and stretch the field. Johnson was targeted in every quarter, but caught just one ball before the fourth quarter. Johnson and Warner could not connect on the deep ball, but Johnson was in a position where if the ball had been thrown on the money he would have scored two or three touchdowns. His first target was in the end zone, and the third was an interception that would have been a touchdown if more air was put under the ball. Johnson had three more long opportunities in the third quarter but came away empty handed. Johnson finished with two short catches of 11 and four yards in the fourth quarter.

2005 Week 3 vs SEA (5 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)

Johnson was invisible during the first half. Three of his targets and his lone reception came at the end of the game in garbage time. He has a solid lock on the number three receiving job in Arizona, but that number three is far behind WR Anquan Boldin and WR Larry Fitzgerald. Also, Johnson returned two kickoffs during the second half.

2005 Week 4 vs SF (7 / 4 / 50 / 0 rec)

Johnson had five catches for 50 yards. He had a number of key drops early in the game.

2005 Week 5 vs CAR (2 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)

Johnson played a lesser role in this game with Josh McCown than in previous games where Kurt Warner had done a better job of spreading the ball around.

2005 Week 7 vs TEN (2 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)

Johnson was targeted three times in the third quarter. He caught the first two, for nine and 12 yards each. Johnson did not make the grab on the final target as he was pulled down by CB Pacman Jones, but he did get a five yard pass interference call on the play.

2005 Week 8 vs DAL (5 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)

Johnson had two catches for 14 yards on the day. If Anquan Boldin misses time with the knee injury, Johnson will be counted on to contribute more.

2005 Week 9 vs SEA (11 / 6 / 66 / 1 rec)

With Anquan Boldin out due to injury, Johnson had an excellent opportunity to prove his worth. At one point in the game, he had as many drops as catches, including a third quarter pass where Warner placed the ball right on his numbers in the end zone. To his and Warner's credit, they hooked up on the next play for a touchdown.

2005 Week 12 vs JAX (6 / 5 / 77 / 0 rec)

Johnson was not targeted until the second half. He took advantage of single coverage as Arizona was trying to come back, and had four wide receivers on the field. To his credit, he caught every ball thrown to him.

2005 Week 13 vs SF (4 / 3 / 28 / 0 rec)

Johnson was not a big factor, catching three balls for 28 yards, and was targeted only four times for the game.

2005 Week 14 vs WAS (6 / 5 / 61 / 0 rec)

Johnson played in most three and four wide receiver sets and finished the afternoon with five grabs for 61 yards.

2005 Week 15 vs HOU (1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Johnson caught the only ball thrown his way for a 12 yard gain.

2005 Week 16 vs PHI (4 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)

Johnson got into a bit of a groove in this game, making some nice catches out of the slot position. He had only three catches for 26 yards, but had a long touchdown called back due to an illegal shift penalty.

2005 Week 17 vs IND (2 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)

Johnson caught both balls thrown his way for 16 yards.
