Derrick Henry’s big run puts the Titans back in the game

AP

The first half was ugly for the Titans. The second half has been ugly for the Chiefs.

Derrick Henry ran for a 35-yard touchdown in the first minute of the fourth quarter, and suddenly the Titans, who trailed 21-3 at halftime, are right back in the game. The Titans went for two after the touchdown but failed, so they’re now down 21-16.

Henry’s score came after Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown pass to himself to get the Titans in the end zone for the first time today.

Mike Mularkey may be coaching for his job today. If so, he’s making a pretty good case for himself. We’ve got ourselves a ball game.

  1. So, Mariota is really a running back – the NFL must require players to declare their position and to limit running from the QB position – if you are going to wear a QB uniform, you should be limited on how much you can run.

    I am so sick of these fake QB’s – wear QB halloween costumes and then run.

    Limit QB’s to five rushing plays in a game and if they go over that, 15 yard penalty, loss of down, and sent to the sideline to put on a running back number and not be able to play QB for the rest of the game.

  2. I feel like they’re winning in spite of Mularkey. I thought it was too early to go chasing point and go for two, and now they have a one point lead instead of three because of two failed conversions. They should probably scrap all of the razzle dazzle WR screens, Mariota can’t seem to throw an accurate screen to save his life

  3. Is derek henry a soft runner? From the games i watch he just doesn’t run hard like a man that is 250. I see CBs not afraid to tackle him and when they touch him, he just goes down. When i picture big strong RBs I don’t feel like he blends with other backs that are known as a power back. This whole game i see cbs not even bother going for his legs they hit him as if he was a 180lb back
