If the Tennessee Titans ran back to Derek Henry on Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers and ran for 100 yards, the former Alabama All-American would tie the NFL record held by Barry Sanders. .
This may lead the Titans to the playoffs.
While competing in Lambeau Field, Henry rushed for at least 100 yards in the past nine road races in Tennessee. Sanders (Sanders) 10 consecutive games with 1
Sanders also held the record of 100 yards in the National Football League on December 19. Henry has 8 100-yard games in the 12th month, including 7 of his past 12 11 games.
Tennessee has won all these eight games. In mid-December, only one NFL player created more 100-yard sprints without losing a game-Edgerrin James, who scored 17-0 in the 100-yard sprint in the 12th month The record.
If the Titans beat Green Bay, Tennessee will get a playoff berth, and there is one week left in the regular season.
In the past nine road games, Henry ran for 1,268 yards and made 14 touchdowns in 230 carryovers. Henry’s road statistics do not include last season’s playoffs, when he ran for 446 yards and scored 83 passes and two touchdowns in three away games.
Packer coach Matt LaFleur served as Tennessee’s offensive coordinator in 2018. This is Henry’s first season as an NFL starter.
“He is a beast,” Lafleur said to Henry. “You can see it. He played very confidently. You can see that all 11 people are very efficient in offensive games and passing games. Obviously, when you have someone like Derrick Henry ) As an eloquent person, he is a very, very fast big man, and it provides you with everything. They know that everyone will try to stop running every week and no one can do it.”
Entering the 16th week of the NFL season, the Titans scored 436 points, more than any team in the league. The Packers scored only 2 points less. Sunday night’s game is the first game in the 16th week or later in NFL history, and each team averages at least 30 points per game.
For Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, the reason for the success of the Titans offense is no secret. It’s Henry.
Pettien said: “For me, this is what makes this kind of offense difficult to defend.” “You think it’s one-dimensional, but it’s not actually because it starts with running and then running opens everything. The game The pass is just some open vision they can get, it’s just trust in their football performance. If you are not locked and fly downhill and react to these running appearances, you will be surprised in the running game, this is The reason why you see so many open or really advantageous appearances on offense.…
The tape does not lie. This is a special career guard, so it is a huge challenge for us. Our guy is looking forward to it. It’s Rambo’s December football match. I just think this is a night game and national TV station, everything will be strengthened. “
Titan and the Packers are scheduled to be held at Rambo Stadium in Green Bay, Wisconsin at 7:20 pm (American Standard Time) on Sunday. NBC will broadcast the game.
