Derrick Henry continues his dominant play
Titans running back Derrick Henry put on a show once again in the 31-17 victory over the Colts. Henry started the game shaky, as his fumbling issues came to light once again in the first quarter as he fumbled on his first carry of the game.
That would be one of the few mistakes that Henry made all day, and he was once again dominant and the clear-cut difference maker for this Titans offense.
Once the former Heisman trophy winner from Alabama gets going, it is hard to stop him. Henry finished the day with 149 rushing yards and one touchdown on 26 carries, while also contributing 17 yards through the air on three receptions.
If Henry continues to play like this, he will undoubtedly earn the right to be in the discussion for a huge pay day come March. The former second-round pick eclipsed the 1000-yard threshold for the second consecutive season in this game and has already surpassed his personal best for rushing yards in a single season.
Henry has already rushed for 1,140 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground through 12 games thus far and seems to be hitting his stride as the season begins to wind down.
