also be­came the first player in the NFL with four rush­ing TDs in a game since Jonas Gray of the Pa­tri­ots in Week 11 in 2014.

Ti­tans coach Mike Vra­bel called Henry’s night “very im­pres­sive.”

With the rout and sec­ond win in a row, the Ti­tans (7-6) stayed in AFC play­off con­tention with their fourth straight vic­tory over their old­est divi­sion ri­val. They’ve won six of their last seven against Jack­sonville.

Henry’s TD capped a huge swing over two plays.

Ti­tans rookie Cameron Bat­son muffed the punt at the Ti­tans 7 be­fore re­cov­er­ing at the 1 and be­ing tack­led in the end zone for a safety. The Jaguars took the en­su­ing free kick and drove down­field where they picked up a fourt­hand-1 at the Ti­tans 5.

On the very next play, Henry started to­ward the mid­dle be­fore turn­ing left for a TD run where he sim­ply couldn’t be stopped. Henry had 129 yards on six car­ries with two TDs all by half­time to be­come the Ti­tans’ first 100-yard rusher this sea­son. Be­fore his night ended, he added TD runs of 16 and 54 yards .


The Ti­tans run­ning back has three TDs of 70 yards or more rush­ing since 2017, the most in the NFL. Four­nette, who has two such TDs, is the only other player with more than one in that span. Ac­cord­ing to the NFL, no player in the Su­per Bowl era had rushed for 200 or more yards and four or more TDs on 20 or fewer car­ries. Henry did both on 13 car­ries.
