Few running backs have been as dominant as the Tennessee Titans’ Derrick Henry across the past two seasons. Henry provided more proof Sunday, when he surpassed 2,000 rushing yards for the season in the Titans’ 41-38 win over the Houston Texans.
On a lengthy drive in the fourth quarter, Henry reached 227 rushing yards — surpassing the milestone. He finished with 250 yards and two touchdowns on 34 carries in the win, which gave Tennessee the AFC South title for the first time since 2008.
“I’m glad we were able to finish with a W at the end,” Henry said. “We won as a team and we all do it together. I’m just glad that we were able to accomplish this and win the division and get to the playoffs.”
Henry finished the season as a triple crown rushing winner by leading all running backs in yards (2,027), attempts (378) and rushing touchdowns (17).
