NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Derrick Henry is a man of few words, preferring to work hard with a tunnel-vision focus and let his play do all the talking.
Henry has been almost shouting the way he keeps running into the NFL record books.
Now the NFL’s back-to-back rushing leader has the opportunity in 2021 to add even more history to what’s been an amazing couple years. Fresh off becoming just the eighth man to run for at least 2,000 yards, Henry now has a 17th game giving him a chance at Eric Dickerson’s league record of 2,105 yards set in 1984.
Henry also could become the first man — fifth all time — to lead the NFL in rushing in three consecutive seasons in nearly three decades. Emmitt Smith
