Derrick Henry has authority for NFL's second 99-yard run

Before Thursday night, Tennessee Titans back Derrick Henry's longest run of the 2018 season had 16 meters. The former Alabama All-American had a longer run against Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday – and he will never have one longer. Henry bound the NFL record for the longest run from scrimmage by dropping 99 meters for a touchdown against Jaguars. The only other player in the NFL story with a 99-yard run from scrimmage is Dallas Cowboys' Tony Dorsett, who completed the celebration against Minnesota Vikings on January 3, 1 983. Henry took handoff on the left side of The Titans line and, after breaking through, paved the way over three Jacksonville defenders – throw linebacker Leon Jacobs to the ground – to reach the final zone for a run that could never be better. [19659002] Henriks driving arrived at 7:07 in the second quarter when Titans took a 14-2 lead. Henry also competed with Tenson's first touchdown on a 3-yard run by 9:30 in the first quarter to cap Titan's opening possession. Henrik's best single-game rushing in total for the 2018 season was 58 meters against New England Patriots on November 11th. He had 129 on six berries Jaguars after his second touchdown run.
