Chris Johnson has had an up-and-down season. He has had five games in which he's rushed for at least 122 yards, including a 195-yard explosion against the Bills in Week 7. However, he has also had five games when he's rushed for 28 or fewer yards, including last week's loss 55-7 thumping by the Packers.
The Jaguars have to keep Johnson from having one of his big games if they hope to win. Johnson averages 111.6-yards-per-game and 5.9-yards-per-rush in the Titans wins. All but one of his touchdowns have come in Titans victories.
Johnson's numbers drop off dramatically when the Titans lose. He averages 62.9-yards-per-game in losses, which is an almost 50-yard drop-off from wins. His per-carry average drops to 3.9 in losses. Each of the back's five fumble have come in losing efforts.
Johnson's contributions are minimal in Titans' losses and the Jaguars have to make sure they slow him down Sunday. The Jaguars did just that in their Week 12 win over the Titans when Johnson rushed for only 80 yards on 21 carries.
He has had runs of 94, 83 and 80 yards, but he has had stretches which it has taken him 30-plus carries to equal the yardage of one of those runs. The Jaguars can end Johnson's season on such a slump and help guarantee a win Sunday.
