CJ eclipses 2,000 in Titans 17-13 victory

January 3, 2010

Let’s give a round of applause to the newest member of the NFL’s 2,000 yard rushing club, Chris Johnson.

CJ finished his unforgettable campaign with 2,006 yards via his 36-carry, 134-yard/2 TD performance in today’s Titan 17-13 victory over the Seahawks.

There is an excitement in the air, a palpable sense that CJ is about to make another big play.
