Derrick Henry is the BamaCentral Crimson Tide Pro Athlete of the Week
On Sunday, former University of Alabama running back Derrick Henry showed why the Tennessee Titans signed him to a four-year, $50 million extension this offseason as he carried the ball 26 times for 119 yards and two touchdowns in the team's 31-30 comeback victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
His two scores were both in the second half that helped Tennessee erase a 24-12 deficit. On the season, Henry now has 319 rushing yards on 82 carries, and five catches for 26 yards and two total touchdowns.
- Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley continues to a hot start to his 2020 campaign as he caught five passes for 110 yards in a 30-26 loss against the Chicago Bears. That's three straight 100-plus yard games for him.
- Dallas Cowboys wide out Amari Cooper hauled in nine receptions for 86 yards in a 38-31 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
- Washington defensive tackle Jonathan Allen recorded nine tackles and one sack against the Cleveland Browns.
- Dallas Cowboys defensive back Trevon Diggs also had this incredible forced fumble:
