Mike Bianchi predicted that former Orlando Apollos running back D'Ernest Johnson would have a breakout performance on Thursday Night Football..and he did! The short-handed Cleveland Browns defeated the Denver Broncos 17-14 while D'Ernest Johnson put the team on his back! He carried the football 22 times for 146 yards and a touchdown. The former AAF running back picked up the slack for an injured Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt, and starting quarterback Baker Mayfield. Backup QB Case Keenum was able to do his thing because of how well Johnson played.
D'Ernest Johnson is such a great story but in the podcast below, we also discuss why running backs are a dime a dozen if you build a proper offensive line.
