Things were electric between the conference rival Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens in Maryland on Sunday. Heck, tempers were flaring ahead of the big game between two 6-3 teams. However, it was reigning NFL rushing champion Derrick Henry who had the last laugh.
With the game tied at 24 in overtime, King Henry won it in walk-off fashion by virtue of a 29-yard touchdown. The play itself was something else.
Titans RB Derrick Henry with walk-off TD run
What an absolutely monumental big boy performance from Derrick Henry here. Tennessee had lost three of four since opening the season with a 5-0 record. Meanwhile, the Ravens were losers of two of three heading into this rematch of last season’s AFC Divisional Playoffs.
By virtue of this run, Henry helped his Titans to a 7-3 record. Meanwhile, Baltimore would be on the outside looking in when it comes to a playoff spot if the season were to end today.
Derrick Henry finished the afternoon having put up 133 rushing yards on 28 attempts. This represented Henry’s sixth 100-yard game of the season. He’s now tallied 1,079 rushing yards in 10 games.
Needless to say, the NFL world had its reactions to Derrick Henry and his clutch overtime performance against Baltimore.
