Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is off to a strong start against the Indianapolis Colts. He eclipsed the 100 yards on the ground the first time he faced the AFC South leaders this season and has followed that performance up with an even more impressive one. Henry has rushed for 140 yards and three scores on 17 carries against the Colts to help his team secure a 35-14 lead at the break.

Henry entered Week 12 as the NFL’s leading rusher and is doing his best to defend his rushing title by holding off the Minnesota Vikings’ Dalvin Cook. Ryan Tannehill has 136 passing yards on 8-of-13 passing and Henry could continue to power the Titans on offense in the second half if they are able to maintain a sizable lead.
