Le’Veon Bell, Todd Gurley react to Derrick Henry’s beastmode touchdown run
NFL stars around the world are reacting to the career night from Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry.
The former Heisman Trophy winner has already rushed for four touchdowns through three quarters in Thursday night’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and his 99-yard score early on has drawn plenty of attention.
After the Titans stopped the Jaguars on a fourth and goal attempt, Henry took a handoff nearly the entire length of the field for one of the most impressive runs in NFL history.
And that has other running backs like Todd Gurley and Le’Veon Bell commenting on Henry’s heroics.
Gurley even went as far as calling it the run of the year, while Bell had no choice but to be wowed by the second-year back’s incredible showing.
RUN OF THE YEAR💪🏾😤 https://t.co/ja4jH8jQYv

Henry has had an up and down season in Nashville, as he entered the game with just 128 carries for 474 yards and five touchdowns.
Many Titans fans have been wondering why Henry hasn’t had more touches on a weekly basis, but something tells me that he might see them increase after a performance for the ages.
The Titans will remain in the playoff hunt heading into the next week, with the likely win against Jacksonville sending Mike Vrabel’s squad to 7-6 overall on the season.
Tennessee will travel to New York for a meeting with the Giants in Week 15.
