At the beginning of the second quarter tied at three, Henry took the handoff from Ryan Tannehill from the singleback set. Henry blasted his way through the gap in the line before using his speed to outrun the rest of the defense all the way into the end zone.

The Titans have clinched a playoff berth, but are still fighting for the AFC South title with the Indianapolis Colts. Both teams have a record of 10-5 so as long as the Titans win this afternoon they clinch the division title. This power of their own fate has made the Titans come into this week's game against the Texans with a playoff game mentality, not letting up on a single down. A Titans win would pit Tennessee against the Baltimore Ravens.
Henry has 1,777 rushing yards this season along with 15 touchdowns. This season has been Henry's strongest of his career, both in numbers and in terms of impact. Along with being the cornerstone for the Titans offense, he has produced multiple highlight-reel stiff arms, becoming one of the most talked-about running backs in the NFL this season.
The Titans fans and franchise hope that Henry's productivity can help Tennessee get over the hump and further in the playoffs than they have in years past. Despite being one of the hottest teams going into the playoffs last season and being able to get past both the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens, the Titans were not able to get past the eventual Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.
