Titans running back Derrick Henry is not an easy man to take down, but Giants linebacker Tae Crowder did it multiple times on Sunday. And he’s still celebrating.

Crowder was in on four tackles on Henry in the Giants’ upset of the Titans, including a vicious hit that knocked Henry off-kilter. Crowder celebrated that on the field by standing over Henry, but he said he wasn’t worried about getting called for taunting.

Let them call it,” Crowder said, via Tom Rock of Newsday. “We’ll just go line up again.”

Crowder has also been posting multiple photos and videos to Instagram showing him hitting Henry, clearly pleased with himself. And with the Giants taking on another big-name running back in Christian McCaffrey this week, Crowder says the Giants are ready for him.

“Obviously it’ll be different,” Crowder said of the game plan facing McCaffrey. “But it’s not really about what they’re going to do. It’s about what we’re going to do.”

  1. “Let them call it”? And lose 15 yards? Not a great response. Especially if any refs read it.

  2. LMFAO. Let them call it. Right. That is exactly what we want a defender to say. Who cares if a 4th down stop for the win, turns into a 15 yard penalty the turns into losing on a field goal. At least you got to flex and stand over the guy that is headed to the locker room a winner. What a dope.

  3. I think celebrating over how hard you clocked another player and trashing about it all the way into the following week is a good way to have other players, not necessarily even the same one you clocked, lining you up to be the next guy that gets it.

  4. As a giants fan, he’s a big liability in coverage and generally isn’t a great run defender. The only reason he’s still there is because the giants had no money and a promising rookie got injured for the year.
