1. Can Derrick Henry have a vintage performance?
Last November, Derrick Henry had a classic performance against Jacksonville, finishing with 159 yards and 2 TD’s. Everybody should know by now, you do not want to be on the opposing side of Derrick Henry in December.
The Jaguars have surrendered the 3rd-most rushing yards in the league in 2020, and there couldn’t be a more prime matchup for Henry to go off in. Thanks to the Titans getting blown-out for a good portion of their Week 13 matchup last week, Henry only finished with 60 yards on the ground. Henry will surely be ready to make up for that lackluster performance against a bad Jaguar run defense.
Factor in that Henry only netted 84 yards in the Titans’ Week 2 matchup against the Jags this year, and everything seems to be pointing to The King going off this Sunday in Jacksonville.
The Jaguars’ pass defense is also bad, so Tannehill should be able to move the ball effectively through the air. But hopefully, he won’t have to: Henry should make this game uncompetitive pretty early, and almost guarantee a Titans’ playoff appearance once again.
