Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is bulldozing the Baltimore Ravens, but if Baltimore does not come back, it could be a touchdown PASS that turns out to be the difference. Henry broke off a 66-yard run to set up 1st and goal. After coming up short on two goal to go plays, the Titans went with a wildcat formation and Henry threw a three-yard jump pass to Corey Davis for a touchdown.

This marked the first playoff touchdown pass by a running back since 1987. Henry now has the three-yard touchdown pass, 134 yards on 15 rushing attempts, and two receptions for seven yards. He became the third player since 1970 to rush for 125 yards and throw a touchdown in a playoff game, per Chase Stuart.

Ryan Tannehill is making big plays in the playoffs, but Henry has been the key contributor on this offense. They now lead 21-6 midway through the third quarter.
