Titans RB Derrick Henry believes he could’ve gained even more yards vs. Jaguars
Tennesee Titans third-year running back Derrick Henry put together a career-best performance with a franchise-record 238 rushing yards and three touchdowns in the 30-9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
It was an outing in which Henry broke free for a few big runs that included setting the Titans’ record with a 99-yard touchdown run. According to Paul Kuharsky of paulkuharsky.com, the 24-year-old voiced that he believes that he could have had an even bigger performance against the Jaguars.
“There were probably a couple runs I could have read better,” Henry said. “Overall, we’re out there trying to make plays. I didn’t think it as a perfect game. There is always something you can look at and improve on. Each player, anytime he watches film, watches a game, even if he had a good game, can focus on the things he needs to get better at, focus on this week.”
There are always going to be areas that players believe where they can improve on that could have helped them put together strong performances on the field. Henry made the most of his opportunities that was capped by that impressive 99-yard touchdown run as he broke several tackles that included a couple of stiff arms down the sideline while pushing his way into the end zone.
There may have been a few more chances to add to his night as he could have added another touchdown late in the contest as he was stopped short of the goal line in the final few minutes of the fourth quarter. It was a dominating showing from Henry that showed his unique skill set of power and speed that proved to be a huge problem for the Jaguars’ defense.
This could be the type of performance that earns him more of the workload out of the backfield while helping his team make a late push in the playoffs.
