Titans’ Derrick Henry stiff-armed Josh Norman so far he’s now the corner’s father

Derrick Henry, Josh Norman, Titans, stiff arm

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is one of the most bruising rushers in the NFL. Just ask Buffalo Bills cornerback Josh Norman.

Henry stiff-armed Norman off the face of the planet in Tennessee’s blowout victory over the Bills on Tuesday night.

The play generated tons of buzz and reactions on social media immediately afterwards as fans were in awe of Henry’s raw strength powering the Titans rusher past incoming tacklers.

Henry himself had jokes for the media after the game, noting he did “too many curls” in the offseason.

But Norman continues to bear the brunt of the jokes.

Someone humorously updated Norman’s Wikipedia page on Wednesday, labeling the Titans running back as Norman’s “father” in the description, per ESPN’s Field Yates.

Sports fans love to make these jokes, and Wikipedia—which can be edited or updated by just about anyone—often gives them the forum.

The clip is insane enough. Henry actually shoves Norman back multiple yards as he trudges towards the first down marker.

But a close-up of Henry’s face during the play in question really tells the whole story.

Norman never really stood a chance with Henry barreling towards him.

Interestingly enough, the Bills actually kept last year’s leading rusher in check on Tuesday night. Henry rushed 19 times for just 57 yards, and the 3.0 yards per carry mark was his lowest of the year. Of course, Henry found the end zone twice, and the Titans rampaged to a 42-16 victory.

Norman only just made his season debut in Week 4, and actually recorded a forced fumble against the Las Vegas Raiders. But he was met with a vicious stiff-arm from Henry on Tuesday, and is now subject to memes and jokes around the web.
