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
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.  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.  FOR MORE OF AL.COM SAFETY SCOPE OF NFL, Go To Us NFL PAGE
