Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is a nominee for the Week 10 FedEx Ground Player of the Week.
Henry totaled 188 rushing yards and two touchdowns against the Chiefs, and he also broke off one of his signature big plays with a 68-yard scamper that found paydirt. At the time, Henry’s run gave the Titans a lead in the third quarter.
You can place your vote for Henry on the Tweet below, so hurry up and show our man some love! We’re going up against a couple of big fan bases, so let’s show up in force, Titans fans! And for all you fantasy owners who rode Henry to a victory in Week 10, this is your chance to pay him back.
Henry was easily one of the biggest reasons the Titans were able to stun the Chiefs with a win on Sunday at Nissan Stadium to improve to 5-5.
Henry will have some competition for the award in the form of Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones and Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb.
Jones totaled 93 yards on the ground and three scores in the Packers’ win over the Carolina Panthers, while Chubb finished with 116 rushing yards in the Browns’ win over the Buffalo Bills.
While both solid performances for sure, Henry’s numbers trump both. Now we just need the votes to get our man the win and recognition he deserves for what was an outstanding performance.
The 188 yards on the ground were the second-most Henry has ever totaled in a single game. His career-high is 238, which he infamously torched the Jacksonville Jaguars for during Week 14 of the 2018 season.
Earlier this year, Henry was nominated for the Best Play ESPY for his 99-yard touchdown run in the aforementioned game, however he lost out in the finals to UCLA gymnast, Katelyn Ohashi.
Let’s make sure we get him this one, shall we?
