TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

There might not be playoffs on the line Sunday when the Arizona Cardinals (5-7-1) host the New Orleans (5-8) but their might be history.

Cardinals running back David Johnson enters Sunday’s game with an NFL record-tying 13 consecutive games with at least 100 total yards from scrimmage to start a season.

He had 121 yards (80 rushing, 41 receiving) in the Cardinals’ 26-23 loss to Miami last week.

Indianapolis’s Edgerrin James set the mark in 2005.

It’s the third-longest streak at any point in a single season in NFL history.  

Johnson can tie Pro Football Hall of Famer Marcus Allen (14, 1985) on Sunday for the second-longest streak with 100 or more scrimmage yards at any point in a single season.

The most consecutive games with at least 100 scrimmage yards at any point in a single season belongs to the Lions Barry Sanders (15, 1997).

Johnson has 1,085 rushing yards this season and needs just 255 receiving yards over the final three games to become just the third player in NFL history to record over 1,000 yards rushing and receiving in the same season.

Marshall Faulk (1,381 rushing and 1,048 receiving in 1999) and Roger Craig (1,050 rushing and 1,016 receiving in 1985) are the only players in NFL history with 1,000+ rushing yards and 1,000+ receiving yards in a single season.

Kickoff is 2 p.m. at the University of Phoenix Stadium.
