Chris Johnson reacts to Titans RB Derrick Henry’s 99-yard run

Former Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson is one of many people responding to Derrick Henry’s incredible 99-yard touchdown run against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

After the Titans stopped their opponents on a fourth and a goal situation, Henry and company got the ball just barely outside of their own goal line.

But that didn’t matter to Henry, who proceeded to take the handoff all the way to the opposite end zone for six points.

And just like everyone else, Johnson was wowed by what he saw.

Johnson also went on to respond to Titans beat writer Jim Wyatt’s tweet documenting the impressive nature of the run.

Of course, the former three-time Pro Bowl selection is no stranger to phenomenal plays. Johnson was among the most dynamic runners in all of football during his tenure with the Titans before eventually going on to play for the New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals.

As for Henry, this was a much-needed play in what’s been a somewhat disappointing season for the former Heisman Trophy winner. Henry entered the game with 128 carries for just 474 yards and five touchdowns.

However, perhaps this will be the boost of momentum that Henry and the Titans need moving forward.

Tennessee is currently in complete control against Jacksonville, and a win would help the Titans move to 7-6 on the season.

That would give Mike Vrabel’s team a realistic shot at competing for a playoff spot with just three games left, with the rest of the schedule pretty favorable with matchups against the New York Giants, Washington Redskins, and Indianapolis Colts.
