A third round pick in 2019, Johnson finished with the first multi-touchdown game of his rookie year. An 85-yard punt return for a score was an added bonus for the few who put him in their lineup.
The Steelers noticed in the film room that Cardinals punter Andy Lee routinely outkicked his coverage. So, they held onto their blocks for an extra second to give Diontae Johnson even more room. @stephenjnesbitt on Sunday's big play: https://t.co/iEn9KTb3tc— The Athletic Pittsburgh (@TheAthleticPGH) December 9, 2019
