Earlier that day, Johnson posted a photo of his cleats on Twitter titled "R.I.P. to all the victims," a quote that he also wrote on the shoes.
Johnson is not the first player to honor those who were killed at the Newtown shooting during a game.
New York Giant's wide receiver Victor Cruz dedicated Sunday's game to 6-year-old victim Jack Pinto after finding out he was Jack's favorite football player.
During last night's game, Johnson's "RIP SHES" cleats earned him a 94-yard TD run, the second largest one in the history of Monday Night Football.
