Tennessee Titans showcase historic offense vs Houston Texans
By Will Lomas
Another huge day for the Titans offense.
Breaking offensive records in the NFL isn’t as hard as it used to be, but the Tennessee Titans did something so unique that this record might stand for a while.
The win yesterday against the Houston Texans was a comprehensive beatdown on one side of the ball. While the defense left a lot to be desired (like the ability to show a slight interest in stopping an offense) Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry led the charge in the AFC South contest.
Now, we could talk about Anthony Firkser emerging from the shadows to post a 100+ yard game where he came up huge on several plays including a DPI that kept the chains moving on the first scoring drive of the game.
Or we could talk about Jeremy McNichols coming out of nowhere to average 10 yards per rush to give Derrick Henry a much-needed break.
But if we want to talk about history, look at this stat from NFL research.
Think about the great tandems that we have seen throughout NFL history.

The list goes on and on, but despite all of that, it was Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry that put up what is arguably the best example of a dominant, balanced offense in NFL history.
There is a lot to talk about with this team and there is still a lot of work to be done. On offense, Taylor Lewan hasn’t been healthy this season and we just found out that he has torn his ACL and he is out for the season.
In slightly happier news, Corey Davis should be coming back soon and this offense could get another weapon to play with.
Defensively, they can’t stop an offense on third down and they are so far removed from the dominant defense of 2018 that they don’t even look like the same team.
But at the end of the day, this team will go as far as Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry will take them and despite the bad news coming out of Sunday’s win, you have to be encouraged by that. Oh yeah, and the team is 5-0. That is pretty good.
