With 5:02 to go in the first quarter, Johnson received a handoff from quarterback Deshaun Watson, made one move to the right, and scampered for 19 yards and into the endzone for the first touchdown of the year. At that point in the game, Johnson had three carries for 33 yards and the score.
Johnson was once one of the top two-way threats in the league, leading the NFL with 2,118 yards from scrimmage in 2016. That helped him earn a three-year, $39 million deal from the Cardinals, though injuries derailed his career there. The Texans are hoping he can provide a boost to their offense, and based on […]
Deshaun Watson led the Texans on a nine-play, 80-yard scoring drive. Running back David Johnson, whom the Texans acquired in the DeAndre Hopkins trade, scored the season’s first touchdown on a 19-yard run to the end zone.
It took a series for the Houston offense to get going, but it showed how dynamic it can be by going 80 yards for a score later in the first quarter. But it also went through a long mid-game malaise that allowed the Chiefs to turn a 7-0 deficit into a 31-7 lead before Watson […]

Arizona’s acquisition of Hopkins automatically made it a contender to win the NFC West. It is going to be an even more competitive division than it has been in recent memory. The Cardinals’ shrewd moves earlier in the year made it so.
Special teams This unit had a breakdown that changed the tenor of the game. The Cardinals scored a TD one snap after they blocked Mitch Wishnowsky’s punt while trailing 10-0 midway through the first quarter. Cornerback Dontae Johnson, in the role of protector, was forced to attempt to block two defenders who came free. That’s […]
People, quite rightly, talk a lot about climate change. But it is now clear that man-made global warming is only one of a number of crises in play. A team of esteemed scientists led by Johan Rockstrom and Will Steffen have identified nine critical thresholds hard-wired into Earth’s environment: climate change, fertiliser use, land conversion, […]
The resignation yesterday of the head of the Government’s legal department, Jonathan Jones, may not be a matter of war and peace. But the principle is the same: the dangers for Britain of a Prime Minister making up international law as he goes along are clear.
Downing Street says it is the last chance to clarify the situation in law before the end of the year. Some Tories believe the timing of the move is part of a broader tactic designed to put pressure on the EU to cut a deal now or risk the UK acting independently in even more […]
