NASHVILLE – Titans running back Derrick Henry has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 6.

Henry racked up 212 yards and two touchdowns in the team's 42-36 overtime win over the Texans. He scored the game-winning touchdown from five yards out in overtime.

The performance was Henry's third career 200-yard rushing game, and it was his second-highest rushing total for a single game, trailing only his franchise-record 238 yards against Jacksonville on Dec. 6, 2018.

Henry now owns three of the top six single-game rushing performances in team history.

In addition to his yards on the ground, Henry added 52 receiving yards, including a 53-yard reception to give him 264 scrimmage yards. The total ranked fourth in franchise history, and was the most scrimmage yards by a Titans player in a game since Chris Johnson's 284 on Sept. 20, 2009.

Henry's total of 264 scrimmage yards was the most by any NFL player since the New York Giants' Saquon Barkley had 279 at Washington on Dec. 22, 2019.

Henry scored on a 94-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, which tied for the second-longest run in franchise history. Henry owns the franchise record —and a share of the NFL record — with his 99-yard touchdown run vs the Jaguars in 2018.

The Titans face the Steelers on Sunday at Nissan Stadium.
