Video: Titans’ Derrick Henry goes off for a 99-yard touchdown score vs. Jaguars
Maybe Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry started himself in fantasy football this week. Henry is having a blast in the first half of a Week 14 Thursday Night matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he’s obviously not in the mood to go soft on Jags defenders, as evidenced by this huge, vicious, and merciless 99-yard touchdown run he scored in the second quarter of the contest.

That touchdown was Henry’s second of the night, and based on how well he’s doing and how ineffective Jacksonville’s defense has looked as of this writing, there could be more in store for the former Alabama Crimson Tide star.
Henry has been on touchdown frenzy of late. Henry entered Thursday’s matchup having scored four rushing touchdowns over the Titans’ previous five games.
What’s even more interesting is the fact that the yards Henry covered in that massive touchdown run are more than any he compiled in a game prior to this outing. His previous season-high was 57 rushing yards, which he racked up coincidentally during the Titans’ Week 2 9-6 win over the Jaguars.
The Titans are looking to go above .500 with a win in the rematch with Jacksonville. After dealing with the Jaguars, Tennessee will have over a week to prepare for a meeting with the New York Giants.
