October 15, 2020 10:29 am

If NFL teams weren’t already scared of Tennessee Titans running back, Derrick Henry, they are now. The former Heisman Trophy-winning athlete put in a stellar display on Tuesday night as his team beat the Buffalo Bills by a 42-16 margin at the Nissan Stadium. On 19 carries, Henry rushed for 57 yards with two rushing TDs to his name.

However, he grabbed headlines for his devastating one-hand stiff-arm on Buffalo Bills defender, Josh Norman. But, as per his own words, that’s just business as usual for ‘King Henry’.

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry leaves Ryan Tannehill speechless

Derrick Henry is a monster, as is evident from the video above. The Florida-born running back is seen as one of the most special players to join the NFL. He proved why he is so highly rated after an impressive display in last night’s win over Josh Allen-led Buffalo Bills.

Here’s what Titans’ quarterback, Ryan Tannehill, said regarding Henry’s one-arm throw down on Bills defender Josh Norman.

I screamed, ‘Holy c**p!’ That was unbelievable just to see the way he tossed that guy. Derrick is a special player. We’ve seen the stiff arm from him. I saw it all last year. I’ve seen it before I got here, highlights of it. Obviously, he’s strong, physically a tough runner. That was probably one of the meanest stiff arms I’ve ever seen, no doubt,” Tannehill said via Sports Illustrated.

But what was Derrick’s response to this headline-grabbing incident?

“I have been doing too many curls. I have to lay off the arms,” Henry told NFL Network after the game.

King Henry along with his Tennessee teammates remains unbeaten after four games. They go up against Deshaun Watson’s Houston Texans in Week Six. Following that, Ryan Tannehill will face-off against veteran NFL star Ben Roethlisberger’s Pittsburgh Steelers a week later.

If the Titans maintain their current form, they are bound to seal a spot in the playoffs, sooner rather than later. We reckon we’ll see a few more of the famous ‘Derrick Henry stiff-arms’ in the coming weeks.
