NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry exploded for a 99-yard touchdown run in the second quarter against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night.

Henry’s run tied Dallas Cowboys Hall of Fame running back Tony Dorsett for the longest run in NFL history.

It was also the first 99-yard touchdown from scrimmage since Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz caught a 99-yard touchdown pass in Week 16 of the 2011 season against the Jets, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.

Henry’s run is the longest in franchise history. Henry totaled 81-yards after contact as he stiff-armed Jaguars linebacker Leon Jacobs and cornerback A.J. Bouye to the ground on the run. Before Thursday, Henry’s longest run this season was only 16 yards.

Going into Thursday night’s game., the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner out of Alabama led the Titans with 474 rushing yards on 128 carries — an average of 3.7 yards per attempt — and five touchdowns.
