Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry smashed his way into the record books during his team’s Thursday night Football game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, which they won 30-9, after he tied Tony Dorsett for the longest touchdown run in NFL history.

Henry, who came into the game averaging 3.7 yards per carry, stiff-armed three Jaguars players on his way to completing a 99-yard touchdown run in the middle of the first quarter with the Titans leading 7-2.

Dorsett, a Dallas Cowboys Hall of Fame running back, had held the record for 36 years before it was broken by Henry with one of the most scintillating runs in NFL history. The running back also set a franchise record, but surprisingly only by five yards as former Titans running back Chris Johnson ran 94 yards against the New York Jets in 2012.

Henry was not done for the night and with one quarter left to play, he was at 219 rushing yards, which was just nine yards short of the franchise’s all-time record set by Johnson in 2009, also against the Jaguars. And in the fourth quarter, the Titans running back broke the record when he completed 229 rushing yards.

According to NFL Research, Henry also has a few more accolades following his 99-yard dash against the Jaguars. The running back has three 70+ yard touchdown runs since 2017 — the most in the NFL. Also, no player in the Super Bowl era has rushed 200+ yards and 4+ touchdowns on 20 or fewer carries. Henry has now done both, and with just 13 carries.

Henry’s recorded-breaking run saw Twitter erupt, with many former and current NFL stars praising his achievement and former Titans running back Johnson was the first to congratulate Henry after he broke his 228 yard rushing franchise record.
