Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry broke a huge touchdown run against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 10.
When the Tennessee Titans needed a spark on offense, running back Derrick Henry provided exactly what they needed.
On and second-and-5 in the third quarter with the Titans trailing 19-13, Henry broke through the defensive line of the Chiefs and rumbled his way to the end zone on a 68-yard touchdown run.
With the extra point, the Titans grabbed a 20-19 lead with a little over six minutes left in the third quarter. After the score, Henry now has 123 yards on 12 carries, along with two catches for three yards.
Unfortunately, the Chiefs were able to re-take the lead on the next drive with a field goal.
Henry’s 12 carries so far are a far cry from last week against the Carolina Panthers, when he totaled just two carries in the first half before getting 11 in the second half. Clearly the Titans know the Chiefs can be attacked on the ground and have game planned accordingly.
Coming into this game, time of possession was huge for Tennessee, but the Titans have held the ball for barely over 11 minutes thanks to a few big plays. Even with that fact, the Titans have found a way to grab a lead in a game that has seen the Chiefs dominate the time of possession.
If the Titans can make a stop and maintain their lead, you better believe Tennessee is going to continue to feed Henry in order to attempt to run the clock and control the ball.
Henry is the perfect back to help ice a lead, so the Titans have to utilize his bruising skill set in order to get it done. That is, if they can actually take a late lead.
