Johnson had a hand in one AFC touchdown when he took a lateral from Chargers safety Eric Weddle to complete a 60-yard interception return. Weddle initially returned the interception 27 yards before latteraling to Johnson, who then rolled 60 yards for the score.
The AFC defense finished the day forcing five turnovers, including three interceptions off Panthers rookie quarterback Cam Newton.
Johnson’s fourth quarter touchdown gave the AFC a 59-35 lead with just under six minutes to play. Newton’s pass was intended for former Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez.
