Transfer over, Tony Dorsett. You’ve firm.
For 36 years, the Dallas Cowboys’ Hall of Standing running aid had stood on my own with the longest flee in NFL historical previous. That every one modified Thursday night at Nissan Stadium against the Jacksonville Jaguars, when the Tennessee Titans’ Derrick Henry etched his title alongside Dorsett’s in the NFL suppose e-book.
Genuine now after the Titans’ protection stuffed the Jaguars for a blueprint-line stand, Henry went on his epic touchdown flee that build clown pants on the Jaguars’ as soon as-vaunted protection.
Henry burst during the left side of the road of scrimmage, gave a soul-crushing stiff arm to A.J. Bouye, then tossed apart Leon Jacobs and in a roundabout method out ran Myles Jack for the suppose-tying Ninety 9-yard touchdown flee.
Dorsett pulled off a Ninety 9-yard touchdown flee in the 1982 traditional-season finale against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night time Football.
Clearly, Henry’s flee is a Titans franchise suppose, but — amazingly — completely by five yards. Chris Johnson had a ninety four-yard touchdown flee against the Original York Jets in 2012.
Henry’s suppose-tying touchdown flee comes lovely two weeks after the Houston Texans’ Lamar Miller had a ninety seven-yard touchdown flee against the Titans on Monday Night time Football. It’s also the zero.33 ninety-plus yard touchdown flee in the final Eleven days. Adrian Peterson had a ninety-yard touchdown flee against the Eagles on Monday night.
