Titans’ Derrick Henry rumbles 94 yards to retake lead vs Texans

Derrick Henry, Titans, Texans

Tennessee Titans’ running back Derrick Henry broke a 94-yard touchdown run against Houston that put the undefeated AFC South leaders back on top against the Texans in a game now headed for overtime.

Having initially built a 21-7 lead against the 1-4 Houston squad, the Texans had scored 16 unanswered points to a two-point lead against the Titans, before Tennessee’s offensive line opened a gaping hole for their all-pro running back to take advantage of, midway through the fourth quarter.

His fifth score of the season, the rush also pushed Henry above the 200-yard mark for the afternoon, further solidifying his place as the offensive engine of a Titans team that has vaulted into contention. Coming into the afternoon ranked third in rushing yards among NFL leaders, according to stats provided by ESPN,  it is likely that Henry will end the day atop the leader board, a position he secured last season as well, when he gained 211-yards in the Titans final game against the New Orleans Saints.

The Texans have since regained the lead late in the fourth quarter.
