Hail to the King!
The Tennessee Titans met the Houston Texans for a divisional matchup and looked to make the most of it and extend their lead in a weak AFC South. The major news surrounding the day was the first start of rookie quarterback Malik Willis but Derrick Henry took it upon himself to have his statistical best of the season.
King Henry lifted the Titans to victory with 219 yards on 32 carries and two touchdowns with his longest run of the day totaling 41 yards. His two touchdowns were the only two times the Titans made it into the end zone.
The performance has now tied him for the most 200+ yard rushing games in NFL history with six.
The first of Henry's touchdowns came late in the second quarter when he burst through on a 29 yard rush on third and two. The second came during the middle of the third quarter when the Titans opted to go for it on fourth and goal from the Texans one yard line.
With the two touchdowns on the day, Henry became the all-time touchdown leader in Titans/Oilers history with 75.
Henry had struggled the first few games of the season, but as of late he has been back to the elite rusher teams have feared since he stepped foot into the league. The King has ramped up his production weekly and finally broke loose in a major divisional matchup.
Henry has had exceptional production during his career against the Texans and has also had over 200 yards and two touchdowns in the last three games he has matched up against them.
