Derrick Henry talks jump pass TD play from Titans win over Ravens
Running back Derrick Henry spoke about his jump pass touchdown in the Tennessee Titans’ win over the Baltimore Ravens.
Running back Derrick Henry showed he can hurt a defense with more than just his legs and a mean stiff arm after he threw a touchdown pass in the Tennessee Titans’ Divisional Round win over the Baltimore Ravens.
Henry, who rushed for 195 yards on 30 carries and broke all sorts of playoff records, scored his only touchdown of the night in an unlikely way: he threw a jump pass touchdown to wide receiver Corey Davis for his team’s third score of the night.
Take a look.
Even the way Henry stomps his foot before the snap looks tough and mean. This man is the embodiment of toughness and strength, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
It was only fitting that Henry’s touchdown pass was set up by one of his customary big runs that went for 66 yards, his longest gain of the night.
After the game, Henry spoke about the play, courtesy of Titans beat writer Paul Kuharsky.
Before the game, Ravens safety Earl Thomas thought he and his teammates would have a bit more success in tackling Henry, however it became apparent that wouldn’t be the case after Henry basically used Thomas as a blocker on a 27-yard run.
Henry also spoke about Thomas after the game, via Paul Kuharsky.
As if you couldn’t like this man more, Henry did a lap around the stadium following the game to show his appreciation for fans. In fact, it took him so long that Titans head coach Mike Vrabel had to wait a little longer for him before entering the locker room.
If there were any doubts about the Titans bringing Henry back next season, they have been completely squashed. He is the heart and soul of this team’s offense and general manager Jon Robinson must do whatever it takes to make sure he never leaves Nashville.
