NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – There’s no question. If the Titans are going to upset the New England Patriots, they have to have a huge day running the football.
That means another big dose of Derrick Henry.
Henry choked out the Chiefs in round one with 156 yards rushing and a dynamic 35-yard sprint to the end zone.
But this is New England. They always take away what teams do best, and everyone’s wondering-can Henry do it again?
“Trying to be better every week. We get a chance to play again against a great team in a good environment, so just making sure I’m doing all of the right things this week. So I’m ready for Saturday,” said Henry.
“I think he’s learned a lot in that Jacksonville game with the number of carries he had. He saw some of the things that he missed by trying to bounce some things. He’s had a lot of success bouncing some runs, but at some point you’ve got to hit it,” said head coach Mike Mularkey.
The Patriots are giving up 4.7 yards a carry, but yes, they’ll be keyed in on Henry Saturday night.News 2 is hosting two pregame specials ahead of the big game-one Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. and another just before the game Saturday at 6:30 p.m.We’ll also have postgame coverage, win or lose.
