Running back Derrick Henry showed why he is considered one of the most dominant forces in the NFL, leading the Tennessee Titans to a convincing win against the Houston Texans.
Henry, with his rare combination of size, speed, and power, put on a masterclass performance. He rushed for a staggering 212 yards and two touchdowns on just 22 carries, averaging an astounding 9.6 yards per carry. His ability to break tackles, find running lanes, and accelerate past defenders left the Texans’ defense helpless.
One of the defining moments of the game came in the third quarter when Henry broke free for a spectacular 94-yard touchdown run. His speed and strength allowed him to shed multiple tackles and showcase his breakaway ability, leaving the Texans’ defense in awe.
The Titans’ defense also played a key role in the victory, with safety Kevin Byard intercepting Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson and cornerback Malcolm Butler returning a fumble for a touchdown. Their ability to create turnovers and make crucial stops gave the Titans the necessary momentum to secure the win.
With this victory, the Titans continue to establish themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the AFC. Henry cements his status as one of the league’s premier running backs, consistently delivering jaw-dropping performances and carrying the team on his broad shoulders.
