2. No Answer for Derrick Henry

When the Broncos and Titans faced off in 2019, Derrick Henry put together what was quite easily his worst performance of the season. It was clear he wanted to come out and have a strong outing against Denver.

By the time the game was over, Henry managed to rack up 31 carries and 116 rushing yards while adding 3 catches and 15 receiving yards. He stepped up in the second half of this game and managed to keep the Titans’ offense rolling enough to win.

The passing game was solid for the Titans in this particular outing, but the tone is set with Henry’s ability to run the football. He has emerged as one of the most difficult to stop in the ground-game and he showed why against the Broncos in Week 1.

Henry appears primed to have another highly effective season. It will be interesting to see if he can hold up throughout the course of the Titans’ schedule considering 31 carries is a hefty workload.
