Well if you were looking for some entertainment the Jaguars and Titans Thursday Night Football match-up didnā€™t disappoint. Derrick Henry broke Tennesseeā€™s single game rushing record with 238 yards and 4 rushing touchdowns. On one play Henry scored on a 99 yard run. Jacksonville had no answer for the former Heisman winner and he propelled the Titans to a 30-9 victory. Mike Vrabelā€™s defense was also a key component in this rout. They sacked Cody Kessler 3 times and made a number of crucial stops including a goal line stand on 4th down. Logan Ryan led that bunch with 7 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 TFL. Jurrell Casey had a strong night too he finished with 6 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and 1 TFL. The Jaguars didnā€™t have much going on either side of the ball but Kessler wasnā€™t terrible. He actually outplayed Marcus Mariota but didnā€™t have enough help around him. Kessler threw for 240 yards, 1 touchdown, and no interceptions compared to Mariotaā€™s 162 yards, no touchdowns, and 1 interception. Dede Westbrook hauled in that lone TD grab on a perfect toe tap near the back of the end zone. Myles Jack was the top defender for the Jaguars with 13 tackles and 1 sack. Telvin Smith added 10 tackles as well but there was no stopping Henry. Thatā€™s all anyone will remember about this game and people were comparing Henryā€™s run to Marshawn Lynch’s Beastquake. Powerful running backs can inspire their teammates and itā€™ll be interesting to see if the 2016 2nd round pick (Henry) can continue to play like this down the stretch? If he can you have to believe the Titans will find a way to get into the postseason. All they need is Baltimore or Pittsburgh to stumble and that would open the door for them.
