We just had the touchdown run of the year in the NFL, courtesy of Derrick Henry. There will be none that can top it.
Backed up against their own end zone after a goal-line stand, the Tennessee Titans were just trying to get some field position. Instead, a first-down handoff to Henry went for a 99-yard touchdown.
It wasn’t just a regular 99-yard touchdown either. Henry had one of the most disrespectful runs this side of Marshawn Lynch.
In the process of covering 99 yards, he stiff-armed A.J. Bouye and shook off a pair of linebackers, all while maintaining his balance and staying in bounds.
Yeah, it was absolutely ridiculous.
DERRICK HENRY WENT BEASTMODE!!! 😱😱😱
99 YARDS. #TitanUp

Henry joined Tony Dorsett as the only players in NFL history to record a 99-yard touchdown run.
The Titans lead the Jaguars 13-2 late in the second quarter in Nashville. You can catch the game on FOX, NFL Network or Amazon.
