Opposing quarterbacks are averaging a 22.2 passer rating when targeting receivers covered by Johnson.
Johnson has played in 5 games in 2023, he missed games vs the Broncos and the Commanders with a hamstring injury.
Jaylon Johnson has played well against a variety of QBs
Johnson has faced Kirk Cousins, Brian Hoyer, Patrick Mahomes, Baker Mayfield, and Jordan Love in the 5 games he has played this season.
Not all of those quarterbacks are elite, but besides Jordan Love, they all have a lot of NFL experience. Johnson has shown up against veteran QBs and has played well when thrown at by them.
It is worth noting that the highest possible passer rating is 158.3 and Johnson is allowing an average of 22.2. Pretty impressive through 5 games.
Johnson has been making a statement with his play so far this season. Showing that he is worth giving a long term contract extension to.
