4th Place – Double Stiff Arm
In Week 12 of the 2019 NFL season, the master stiff arm artist Derrick Henry was at it again. This time, against the Jaguars.
The second half monster Derrick Henry starts off in the third quarter with a huge 74-yard touchdown run to give the Titans a 21-3 lead against the Jags. Henry comes full force through the middle, breaking off some weak tackles, and explodes to the sidelines with two Jaguars chasing behind.
Jaguars safety Jarrod Wilson covers solid ground and gives Henry a little trouble. However, all it does is garner two consecutive stiff arms to the face, the second of which makes him fall as Henry scores a touchdown.
Henry is running full speed along the sideline and somehow jockeys with Wilson. The impressive part is that he gives a full-strength stiff arm, TWICE. It only seems like a minor inconvenience than a real danger as it doesn’t even seem to slow him down. Henry looks like a man swatting at an annoying fly.
Doing this against a division rival in front of a home crowd while scoring makes it just a little sweeter than his maneuver. After inexplicably losing against the Jags earlier in the season, the Titans got sweet revenge and a nice souvenir highlight to dangle in front of the Jaguars.
