1. Feed Derrick Henry the ball early and often
By halftime last week, Derrick Henry only had two carries, which shocked and angered many Titans fans as they entered halftime with a 17-0 deficit.
Henry ended up getting 11 more carries in the second half and finished with 63 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries. He also was an asset in the passing game, racking up 36 yards on three catches, including a 23-yard catch and run in the fourth quarter resulting in a touchdown.
Head coach Mike Vrabel explained that the way the game was going in the first half, he couldn’t really utilize Henry the way he wanted to.
What happened against Carolina cannot happen against Kansas City. The Chiefs boast the fourth-worst run defense in the league, giving up 139.6 yards per game on the ground. The ideal game plan is simple: feed El Tractorcito.
If the offensive flow allows Henry to fall by the wayside yet again, we could be headed towards another long day in Nashville.
