Derrick Henry can do it all on the football field. Even finish a game with more touchdown passes than Patrick Mahomes.
That’s what the Tennessee Titans running back managed to do in a complete domination of the Kansas City Chiefs, beaten 27-3, Sunday afternoon.
As the Titans knocked on the goal gate early in the first quarter, Henry, a “Wildcat” lineup, threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to MyCole Pruitt.
Henry also completed the game with 86 rushing yards.
Mahomes meanwhile completed 20 of his 35 attempted passes for 206 yards, an interception before injuring himself late in the game. The Chiefs’ star quarterback suffered an accidental knee blow to the head that kept him from finishing the game. Chad Henne took over at the helm of the Chiefs’ offense.
Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 21 of 27 passes for 270 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
Receiver AJ Brown had a strong game with 8 receptions for 133 yards and a touchdown.
