Henry Up for Castrol Edge Clutch Performer of the Week

Posted Oct 17, 2017

Titans RB Derrick Henry is a candidate for the Castrol EDGE Clutch Performer of the Week after rushing for career-high 131 yards and a TD on Monday Night Football.

Running backs Le’Veon Bell (Steelers), Adrian Peterson (Cardinals), Mark Ingram (Saints), Derrick Henry (Titans) and linebacker Cory Littleton (Rams) are the nominees for Castrol EDGE Clutch Performer of the Week for Week 6, the NFL announced today. The Castrol EDGE Clutch Performer of the Week is the best performer or performance of the week that represents strength in key moments.

Henry led the team with a career-high 131 rushing yards on 19 carries, topping the 100-yard mark for the first time in his two-year career.  His previous career high was 92 rushing yards at Jacksonville on Sept. 17, 2017.   Henry’s 19 carries also set a career high (previously 16 against Jacksonville on Sept. 17, 2017).

With the Titans ahead 29-22 late in the fourth quarter, Henry took a handoff on third-and-five and raced 72 yards for a touchdown.  The run was the longest of Henry’s career (previously 22 yards at Miami on Oct. 9, 2016) and the team’s 12TH-longest run in the “Titans era” (1999-present).

Fans may vote for one of these five performers on www.nfl.com/castrol-edge through Friday at 3 PM ET to determine the CASTROL EDGE CLUTCH PERFORMER OF THE WEEK. The winner will be announced Friday on NFL Total Access on NFL Network and then posted on NFL.com.
