Kerryon Johnson has great response to Eagles’ defense against him
Kerryon Johnson had a great response to a social media post about how the Philadelphia Eagles’ defense played against him.
Johnson found yards tough to come by during Sunday’s 27-24 win by his Detroit Lions over the Eagles. The Lions running back carried the ball 20 times for 36 yards, an average of just 1.8 yards per carry.
Johnson was held in check due to Philadelphia routinely putting eight or more defenders close to the line of scrimmage. That led to Johnson joking on Twitter that there must be a “conspiracy theory going on.”
There must be some kind of conspiracy theory going on to not let me prosper??? Like I’m a nice person i don’t deserve this https://t.co/EP4TsCf8bM

As a rookie last season, Johnson led the Lions in rushing with 641 yards in 10 games. With Detroit releasing veteran C.J. Anderson, Johnson is in line for plenty of work as Detroit’s main man in the backfield. That means, nice guy or not, Johnson may face more stacked boxes in the near future. It’s up to Detroit’s passing game to take advantage.
