Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry’s stiff-arm play against opposing cornerback Josh Norman became the talk of the town during and after their matchup with the Buffalo Bills.

The former Heisman Trophy winner reacted on Instagram with a bit of trolling, but he also wanted to highlight the important fact that the Titans are 4-0:

An abrupt COVID-19 outbreak still wasn’t enough to stop the surging Titans from continuing with their good showing in the early stages of the season. The highly anticipated encounter between the two undefeated teams turned out to be disappointing, with the Titans easily asserting their dominance by way of a huge second quarter. A scoreless third quarter by the Bills didn’t help their cause and was also exploited by the home team en route to a 42-16 rout.

Before the viral play even occurred, everyone in the building knew that the 6-foot, 200-pound player in Norman wouldn’t stand a single chance against the 247-pound freight train named Derrick Henry. The highlight only capped the veteran back’s 57-yard performance on 19 carries to go with two rushing touchdowns scored for the Titans.

The Bills played without starting cornerbacks in Tre’Davious White (sidelined due to a nagging back injury) and Levi Wallace (recently placed on the team’s injured reserve list). This contributed to their poor defensive showing.

The Titans were also depleted with a number of key players being named to the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to the matchup, headlined by wide receivers Corey Davis and Adam Humphries.

The win now gives the Titans a perfect 4-0 record and their best start since winning their first 10 games back in the 2008 NFL season. The team will only have a short break before they get to host the struggling Houston Texans on Oct. 18.
