Tennessee Titans clobber Jacksonville Jaguars on Derrick Henry’s record night

NASHVILLE — Derrick Henry was utterly unstoppable, the Titans run defense looked much better, and Tennessee continued its playoff push with a 30-9 dismantling of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday Night Football at Nissan Stadium.

Here are five things to know as the Titans improved to 7-6: 

Derrick Henry bulldozes everyone

Many Jaguars tried, but all failed.

Derrick Henry simply would not go down in rushing for an absurd 238 yards — a franchise record for a single game — and four touchdowns… all on just 17 carries. 

Chris Johnson previously held the franchise record for rushing yards in a single game with 228.

Henry's highlight was an all-timer: a 99-yard touchdown run down the left sideline that featured multiple stiff-arms and prompted those in attendance to shoot to their feet. It was the longest run in franchise history (obviously) and tied for the longest run in NFL history. Tony Dorsett also had a 99-yard run while playing for the Dallas Cowboys on Jan. 3, 1983.

Henry also had a 54-yard rushing touchdown in the third quarter, this one featuring his speed as he outran a slew of Jaguars defenders down the right sideline.
