Heisman winner, NFL owner? Derrick Henry continues to haunt the Jags
Any time the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars on playing on your TV, you might miss a Derrick Henry touchdown if you look away for too long.
The former Heisman-winning Alabama running back has had some of the best moments of his NFL career against the AFC South rival Jaguars, and he added another one on Sunday, busting a 74-yard touchdown run to put the Titans up by three scores.
Only 16 seconds later, Henry was celebrating in the end zone again. Jacksonville fumbled the kickoff, allowing the Titans to recover it inside the 10-yard line, and one more straight handoff to the lineman-sized running back gave Jacksonville defenders more nightmare fuel when it comes to trying to tackle Henry.
When most football fans think Derrick Henry, they think back to the 99-yard touchdown run against the Jaguars in 2018, in a game where Henry rushed for a franchise-record 238 yards and four touchdowns.
Sunday’s game was the second and final time the Titans will play the Jaguars in 2019, so it will be almost another year before the Jacksonville defense will have to face him again. There might be a new touchdown run to replay in their heads until that matchup.
74 YARDS TO THE HOUSE! DERRICK HENRY IS A
