Derrick Henry Is Unfair, and the Titans Are Undefeated

Ryan Tannehill deserves to be mentioned in the conversation with the six or eight best quarterbacks in the league, but Derrick Henry deserves the headline treatment after the Titans had a comeback, overtime victory over the Texans on Sunday to remain undefeated.

Henry rushed 22 times for 212 yards and two touchdowns, to go along with two catches for 52 yards, and he might’ve even played better than that looks? He had a 94-yard touchdown run with breakaway speed that was supremely impressive to watch. He had a 53-yard reception in overtime, and eventually punched it in for the game-winning score.

Ryan Tannehill deserves a ton of credit, too. He led a drive in the two-minute drill to tie the game when the Titans were down by a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Overall, he threw for 364 yards and four touchdowns. Earlier this week, Outkick’s Joe Kinsey noted that Tannehill and Mahomes have had relatively similar stats over their past 14 starts.

The Titans are 5-0, coming off an appearance in the AFC title game. How long until everyone realizes they’re for real?
