Derrick Henry Stiff-arming Earl Thomas Belongs in a Museum
Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry had another monstrous game, as the Titans went on the road to Baltimore and stunned the Ravens 28-12 to advance to their first AFC Championship since 2002. Henry got 30 carries for a whopping 195 yards and even threw a touchdown pass to Corey Davis. In an all around dominant performance, Henry became the first player in NFL history to post 180+ rushing yards in three straight games. SICK.
But, one of the plays that had Twitter blowing up Saturday night was Derrick Henry taking Ravens safety Earl Thomas, and putting his ass on skates in the open field.
Just fine, fine art, ladies and gentlemen. Just screenshot this and hang it in a museum. What a beautiful work of art. Henry’s stiff arm is a veritable masterpiece….fitting of the Louvre, if you ask me.
This probably wouldn’t be so sweet if not for Thomas’ comments last week….saying the Ravens wouldn’t be afraid to hit Henry hard and often. Well, Mr. Thomas, you were made a fool of.
I mean, Henry literally just throws his arm up there, SPINS THOMAS AROUND, and keeps going. Thomas’ back is literally facing Henry. He hit him so hard he lost all control of his own body. One of the real highlights of this game.
What a big win for the Titans. For the first time since 2002, they find themselves competing for the AFC Championship. They travel to Kansas City to play the red hot Chiefs at 2:05PM CST next Sunday.
