Henry has 46 carries through three weeks for a total of 139 yards. If you factor in the 60+ yard scamper that wasn’t Authentic Josh Kline Jersey
, he’d have a little over 200 yards. This would’ve boosted his average yards per carry from three to four and some change. Splitting carries isn’t bothering Henry. For him, it’s the belief that he is not making the most out of the carries he is given. Having Jack Conklin manning the right side of the offensive line surely will help boost Henry’s productivity. Trusting the Hole Henry’s hesitancy or lack of patience in understanding the hole will be there keeps him from running with a full head of steam once the ball is stuffed in his gut. OC Matt LaFleur praised Henry’s vision and it’s apparent the Titans want to give Henry more opportunity to do damage. In week one, Henry carried the ball 10 times. Over the past two weeks, he’s carried the ball 18 times twice. Between 18-25 carries per game is what the workload on a good day should look like for Henry as he is a volume runner.What he was used to in college was fields of wide open spaces. In the NFL, the holes will not be as glaring and it will be up to him to hit the crease hard to help it open up. The hesitancy above affects Henry’s ability to process the play because he leans on his instincts to bounce the run outside instead of waiting for the hole to develop. Once Henry can overcome that hesitancy, he will be even more dangerous.A misconception of Henry is thinking he is a bruising back. He’s not. His physical stature suggests one think, but his instincts as a runner are completely opposite. Henry’s style back in college wasn’t built on his ability to plow through people - it was built on his ability move that fast at the second level with that physical size.Dion Lewis, who is obviously not Henry’s size, is more of a between the tackles grinder. What helps Lewis is his trust that the hole will develop - something he can help Henry learn. Lewis’s size contributes to him getting lost behind the line, which make it easier for him to creep up on the openings in the offensive line. Henry doesn’t have the same luxury. He can’t hide behind the line and usually defenders meet him in the backfield Womens Jurrell Casey Jersey
, thus preventing any steam from building up.Adding ViolenceA mad Henry should mean a violent Henry. Violence is good.If Henry attacks even the smallest crease with an intense level of violence, great things could happen. Henry evolving into a force running between the tackles will put him one step closer to being a complete running back, which bodes well for the Titans.In Wyatt’s piece, Henry says he“let three go away”. Although his individual stats aren’t where he’d like them to be, Henry should still realize he has contributed to the offense in the past few weeks. I’ve mentioned in previous pieces that Henry has been a shoestring tackle away from breaking the big one - multiple times. If he approaches the home game against the Eagles with the mentality he spoke about having, it would come at just the right time. There has been somewhat of a difference in the speed of which Henry hits the hole from the Wildcat compared to other formations. A lot could be due to his Wildcat options being cut and dry.
He needs to explode through the hole the same way no matter what the formation.With the offensive line seeming whole again, Henry could be primed for a big day on the ground. If Lewis is on his game, the “Derrick and Dion” show could be fun to watch run wild behind an offensive line nearing full strength. It was the classic trap game for the Titans. A week after beating the Super Bowl champion Eagles, they lose to the Buffalo Bills on the road. Here’s how it happened.Taywan Taylor got the Bills off to a fast start with a fumble on the Titans’ opening drive. The turnover set up Josh Allen in Tennessee territory, who quickly finished the drive off with a scramble into the endzone to give Buffalo a 7-0 lead. After trading punts http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com...rpe-jersey
, it was a Nick Williams punt return that flipped the field for the Titans. Marcus Mariota and the offense wasn’t able to capitalize, but they were able to add three points and cut into the Bills’ lead. On the next possession, Marcus Mariota tossed an interception. It was a quick slant to Nick Williams, but the defender won inside leverage and was able to make the play. However, the Titans’ defense stood tall, forcing a field goal attempt. Thankfully for the Titans, the Bills botched the hold, giving the Titans the ball back with the score still at 7-3.Ryan Succop was able to hit a long field goal before half to cut the lead to 7-6.The mistakes continued for the Titans in the second half.

, forcing the Bills to add a field goal to their lead. It was a 10-6 game with two minutes left in the third quarter.Finally, the Titans starting moving the football. Mariota found Tajae Sharpe for some key conversions on third down, keeping the sticks moving to begin the 4th quarter. Mariota converted a key 3rd and four with a hurdle, then appeared to throw a touchdown to Nick Williams — who dropped it as he entered the endzone.The Titans settled for another field goal, bringing the score to 10-9 with 11 minutes to play.Tennessee needed a play defensively, and they got one from Adoree’ Jackson, who picked off a tipped ball from Josh Allen. Derrick Henry ripped off 15 yards to get into Buffalo territory, but the drive stalled quickly after that. Mariota fumbled out of bounds on 3rd and eight, bringing out Ryan Succop one more time. Succop hit from 50 yards out, giving the Titans a lead for the first time all day. Somehow Womens Brian Orakpo Jersey
, some way, the Titans led 12-10 with under four minutes to play.The Bills were far from done though. LeSean McCoy earned 15 yards to start Buffalo’s drive, then Chris Ivory pushed the ball into Tennessee territory. Ivory picked up another chunk, which brought the Bills into field goal range once again.The clock was on the run and the Titans were out of timeouts. The game came down to a Steven Hauschka field goal attempt, which he nailed from 46. The Bills upset the Titans 13-12, in the classic letdown spot game. The 3-2 Titans will return to action next week against the Ravens.
