Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is still waiting to have his breakout game that Titans fans have been waiting on him to have.
Derrick Henry has had a solid start to the regular season. He’s currently second in the NFL in rushing yards and rushed for a total of 200 yards in the Tennessee Titans’ first two games of the season.
Although he’s had two pretty good performances, he still hasn’t had that breakout game or that explosive run that Titans fans are so used to seeing from Henry. His longest rush of the season is a mere 14 yards, but Henry isn’t worried.
"“They’ll come,” Henry said. “Sometimes things like this happen during the season, where we might have a little adversity, things might not be going the way we want them to or think they should be going. But fixing things, improving, watching film and seeing things we get better at (are things we’re doing) – it’s not what really what the defense is doing, it’s what we need to do better as a whole, individually, and then collectively as a group. That’s what we are trying to do, improve … and eventually it will all come together, and we’ll get rolling the way we want to. But right now, we just have to improve on things we’re not doing so good right now.”"
It’s still early in the season, so Henry shouldn’t have too much to worry about with 14 games still remaining on the schedule.
The Titans offense has already seen big improvements from Week 1 to Week 2, so if the offense continues to improve, Henry will also continue to better his game. With that comes explosive runs.
The Titans’ Week 3 matchup will be the perfect opportunity for Henry and the Titans to take off offensively. The Vikings have allowed the fifth-most rushing yards per game in the NFL through the first two weeks with 154.4 rushing yards per game.
