Titans running back Derrick Henry has officially etched his name in NFL history. In the fourth quarter of Tennessee’s Week 17 game against Houston, Henry became just the eighth player in NFL history to rush for 2,000 yards in a single season, reaching the 2,000-yard mark on a second-and-5 carry.
Henry is the first player to post more than 200 rushing yards and two touchdowns in a game three times in a season. The 6-foot-3, 247-pound back joined Davis as the only players to have at least 1,900 rushing yards and 15 rushing touchdowns in a season. Henry will finish as the Triple Crown winner in rushing categories, leading running backs in rushing yards, touchdowns (17) and attempts.
