Henry Reaches Touchdown Milestone

With the first of his three touchdown runs against the Jacksonville Jaguars, he became the third player in franchise history with 60 career rushing TDs.

Derrick Henry reached another landmark on Sunday.

The two-time NFL rushing champion became the third player in franchise history with at least 60 career rushing touchdowns when he scored his first of three in the Tennessee Titans' 37-19 victory at Jacksonville on Sunday

Henry hit that number when he crossed the goal line on a 1-yard run on the opening play of the first quarter. It was his eighth carry of the contest. He later scored on a 9-yard run in the third quarter and put the game out of reach with a 10-yard run with 1:54 remaining.

It is the fifth time in his career he has scored at least three times on runs and the second time he has done so against Jacksonville. He finished the day with 130 yards on 29 carries.

The only other Titans/Oilers with at least 60 career rushing touchdowns are Earl Campbell, who scored 73 from 1978-84, and Eddie George, who had 64 from 1996-03. Chris Johnson is next on the list with 50.

Henry, who now has 62 in 83 games played. He has averaged one touchdown for every 21.4 rushing attempts of his career, which is better than Campbell (once every 27.1) and George (once every 42.7).

With the latest three, the Yulee, Fla. native has 14 career rushing touchdowns against the Jaguars, which accounts for 22.6 percent of his total and easily his most against any single opponent. Henry has scored nine rushing touchdowns against Houston and six against Indianapolis. Outside of the AFC South, his four against Kansas City are his most against any opponent.

He has scored at least one rushing touchdown in seven of 11 career games against Jacksonville.

Since he broke into the NFL as a second-round pick in 2016, he has scored more rushing touchdowns than anyone. Todd Gurley is next with 57 followed by Ezekiel Elliott with 50.

Henry entered the contest with 510 yards through the first four weeks of the season. That was the most in franchise history through the first four games, surpassing Campbell’s 493 in 1979 and Johnson’s 434 in 2009.

He now has 640 yards and seven rushing touchdowns, both of which lead the league.
