ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Stevie Johnson isn't ready to relinquish his title as the Buffalo Bills No. 1 receiver.
During a season in which his numbers are slipping and critics growing, Johnson is eager to prove his doubters wrong.
Acknowledging he's not played to anyone's expectations, Johnson said: ''I've got to make them love me again.''
That's going to take some doing for the sixth-year player.
His production has been slowed by injuries and compounded by numerous miscues. That has led to Johnson being the target of discontented fans, who have questioned the player's future in Buffalo beyond this season.
Johnson says he's not going anywhere.
He is instead determined to help turn around a team that, at 4-9, has all but been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs for a 14th straight season.
