He started the game off red hot, completing his first nine passes in a row. Johnson did throw one interception and had another one negated due to a penalty, but his patience in the pocket and willingness to settle for the underneath passes when the Cowboys defense gave them to the Bucs was a refreshing sight from a Buccaneers quarterback.
It's apparent by the Bucs' lack of point production that Johnson and his mates on offense are still learning each other's traits as well as new offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen's playbook, but early road win was a good start.
Johnson will have to continue to throw the ball quickly and perhaps look downfield more often next week when Philadelphia comes calling.
