Derrick Henry ready to move on from 99-yard run

Derrick Henry ready to move on from 99-yard run

Of course, Derrick Henry was reminded of the last time he faced the Jacksonville Jaguars on a Thursday night.
Last December at Nissan Stadium, Henry turned in a run for the ages with a record-tying 99-yard touchdown as the Titans rolled over the Jaguars.
Henry, who went for 238 yards in that game, said it is time to put it in the past and focus on the Titans needing to get back on track in 2019.
Asked if the Jaguars players were probably tired of seeing the highlight, Henry said, “I’m tired of seeing it, so I know they are. It’s over with. It was a great moment. I appreciate it. I cherish it, but it’s time to move on. It’s over.”
Henry’s big task – along with the rest of the Titans offense – is to try and figure out why the offense has played so poorly on third downs this season. The Titans are just 3-of-20 on third down conversions, and according to what Coach Mike Vrabel said Monday, 13 of those third-down-situations have been 10 or more yards.
Henry, who had 15 carries for 81 yards, has been a bright spot in the offense, but he said he can do more and better for the Titans to help them overcome their issues.
“As far as me, I can be more efficient. I’ve left some things out there in the run game. I can be better and be more efficient. As an offense, when we get in those third-down situations, we’ve got to sustain drives and not be three-and-out. We can’t get started going three-and-out,” he said.
