Johnson topped 125 yards with an 85-yard touchdown run in the third quarter Sunday against Arizona, giving him 150 yards on 15 carries. Campbell set the mark in 1980 when the Titans were the Houston Oilers, and Dickerson matched him in 1984.

The second-year running back already passed Barry Sanders for the best November rushing the ball in the NFL since the merger with the AFL in 1970. He needed 55 yards coming into Sunday's game to pass Sanders.
