NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Titans running back Derrick Henry has been named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week for Week 14.

Henry set a franchise rushing record with 238 yards and four touchdowns in last Thursday's game against the Jaguars. Henry's rushing total broke Chris Johnson's mark of 228 yards against the Jaguars in 2009.

Henry's rushing yards against the Jaguars were the most in any NFL game this season.

In the contest, Henry took a handoff from quarterback Marcus Mariota inside his own one-yard line and raced 99 yards for a touchdown. It was the second 99-yard run in NFL history, tying Tony Dorsett's record-setting touchdown run for the Dallas Cowboys against the Minnesota Vikings on Jan. 3, 1983.

Henry also scored on touchdown runs of three yards, 16 yards and 54 yards in the contest, as the Titans rolled to a 30-9 win.

The Titans face the New York Giants this Sunday.

Titans running back Derrick Henry carries 17 times for a franchise-record 238 yards and four touchdowns in Tennessee's 30-9 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday Night Football in 2018.
