Texans CB Johnson looking to bounce back after struggling in Buffalo
After struggling to slow down Bills receiver Sammy Watkins in Sunday’s loss to Buffalo, Houston rookie cornerback Kevin Johnson said plans to use the experience to his benefit moving forward.
Johnson, Houston’s 2015 first-round pick, had the worst game of his young professional career, allowing Watkins to catch a touchdown in the red zone, along with a 53-yard reception from Buffalo quarterback Tyrod Taylor as part of a three-reception, 109-yard afternoon. Johnson was also beaten by Bills receiver Robert Woods for another red-zone touchdown.
“I’m going to learn from it," Johnson said, per the Houston Chronicle. "We’re going to watch the tape some more (Monday), and I’m going to see what I can do better and then I’m going to get ready for next week, but learn lessons from it.”
