Two Tennessee Titans have been named to the Pro Football Writers of America’s 2019 All-NFL Team.
A pair of Tennessee Titans players received recognition on the 2019 All-NFL Team compiled by the Pro Football Writers of America.
Henry had his best season in the NFL in 2019. He won the rushing title with 1,540 yards, and his 16 rushing touchdowns were tied for the most in the NFL with Green Bay Packers running back, Aaron Jones.
Henry has continued his sensational season in the playoffs by carrying the Titans to two postseason wins, one against the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots in the Wild Card round, and the other versus the AFC’s No. 1 seed, the Baltimore Ravens, in the Divisional round.
In those games, Henry has totaled 377 yards and two touchdowns (one passing), and he has smashed multiple playoff records. The Alabama product also became the first player in NFL history to rush for 180 yards or more in three straight games.
Kern, who had arguably his best season as a pro as well, led the NFL in punts inside the 20 with 37, and finished No. 4 in the league in gross average punt yards and net average punt yards.
Kern has been so good that Titans defensive coordinator Dean Pees considers him the Most Valuable Player for his defense, and even offered to take Kern and his wife out to dinner to reward him for it.
The Titans punter has continued to be a weapon for Tennessee in the playoffs. He was most notably a difference maker against the Pats, as he continually stuck New England with bad field position thanks to his precise, booming punts.
Henry and Kern are more than deserving of the honors and recognition they are receiving this season, as both have been instrumental in the Titans turning around a 2-4 start to make it all the way to the AFC Championship Game.
